  • Evgeny is Lecturer in International Relations in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne. His research interests centre on international political economy, especially trade policy and its links with social issues, such as labour rights and the environment, as well as European Union politics and external relations. He is particularly interested in the rise of bilateralism in global trade and the role the EU and others play in it. His main work explores the design of social standards in preferential trade agreements, focussing on their causes and consequences. His research also examines policy diffusion within the networks of private actors in the EU's eastern neighbourhood and in transatlantic relations. His work has been published in several international outlets, such as the Review of International Organizations , Journal of European Public Policy , Environmental Politics , New Political Economy and Journal of Common Market Studies . Prior to joining the University of Melbourne, Evgeny was Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Glasgow and also taught at Nankai University in China.
