My name is Louis Clerc. I am a Senior Lecturer in Contemporary History in the University of Turku, Finland.
My research interests are in contemporary international history. More specifically, I deal with the History of Franco-Nordic relations, public diplomacy and the history of diplomatic practices. My PhD dealt with French policy in Northern Europe during the Interwar period.
My teaching activities mostly concern the History of international relations and the History of European Integration.
