Rasmus Sinding Søndergaard

I am a Senior Researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies, working on US foreign policy.

My book, Reagan, Congress, and Human Rights, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2020.


I am also a Visiting Research Fellow at Lund University, a member of the international research project Laying the Foundations: The League of Nations and International Law, 1919 to 1945 and a co-organizer of the workshop series Scandinavian Internationalist Diplomacy, 1920s-1970s


Previously, I was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at Lund University (2019-2020) and a Carlsberg Foundation postdoc at Georgetown University (2017-2019). I received my PhD in History from the University of Southern Denmark in 2017. I've also been a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley and a HIA-Lantos Congressional Fellow in the House Foreign Affairs Committee in the US Congress.


I frequently contribute commentary on US politics and foreign policy in Danish media.
