Tobias C. Hofelich is PhD Research Fellow at UiA's Department of Political Science and Management. He holds an M.A. in Euroculture from Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (2016-2018). Prior to joining the University of Agder, Tobias worked as a public affairs consultant in digital and economic policy.
His research is situated in the field of European integration studies. His current focus are processes of differentiation and disintegration in the European Union. In his most recent research project, Tobias studies the emergence and ramifications of informal differentiation in the EU, whereby the EU legal framework is deliberately circumvented.
