Mingde Wang

I started my training as a political scientist during my master’s study at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands, where I developed an enduring interest in strategic beliefs and psychological approaches towards international politics. Before joining PRIMO, I taught international relations of East Asia at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany.

I am generally interested in how trust forms and breaks down between allies, and also the pattern by which it affects the dynamics of the global security networks the superpowers have built since the Cold War.
