Barbara Roggeveen is a Research Associate at the Clingendael Institute. Her research focuses on Russian foreign policy in the Eurasian region, EU-Russia relations, and Euro-Atlantic security. 

She is currently undertaking a PhD in Russian and East European Studies at Oxford University. Her doctoral research explores a prominent yet under-researched attempt by Russian foreign policy actors to redefine the spatial contours of Russia’s post-Soviet zone of interest – one that increasingly extends eastward to China, India, and the Korean peninsula. Prior to commencing her PhD research, Barbara graduated with distinction from the University of Oxford with an MPhil in Russian and East European Studies.

She has held research positions at the Atlantic Council in Washington DC, the University of Amsterdam, and the OSCE Academy in Bishkek, as well as a teaching position at Oxford University’s Department of International Relations.
