Professor Flockhart is currently on leave from the University of Southern Denmark, where she was a Professor of International Relations, Chair of Social Science in the Danish Institute for Advanced Studies (D-IAS) and Co-Director of the Center for War Studies.

Trine’s current research focuses on global order and processes of change and transformation, the crisis in the liberal international order, NATO and transatlantic relations, ontological security, constructivism, English School theory, and resilience. She has more than 100 publications with her main academic articles having appeared in journals such as Review of International Studies, Contemporary Security Policy, Journal of Common Market Studies, European Journal of International Relations, International Relations.

Professor Flockhart currently leads a research project funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark for Social Sciences on Anticipating Governance in a Multi-Order World. The project investigates the character and development of the Multi-Order World by focusing on resilience-governance within and between the US-led Liberal Order, the Chinese-led Belt and Road Order, the Russian-led Eurasian Order, and emerging transnational forms of orders. The project investigates the prospects for transnational and multi-order governance in three policy domains: autonomous weapons, global health & climate change.
