COMTE, Emmanuel

Professorial Lecturer


Academic Career

I am a Senior Research Fellow at CIDOB, Barcelona Centre for International Affairs, in the areas of migrations and European Integration.

Research Interests

I specialise in the history of European Integration and the history of international migration in Europe since 1945. I have recently published The History of the European Migration Regime: Germany's Strategic Hegemony (Routledge, 2018), "Promising more to give less: International disputes between core and periphery around European posted labor, 1955–2018" (Labor History, 2019), and "Waging the Cold War: the origins and launch of Western cooperation to absorb migrants from Eastern Europe, 1948–57" (Cold War History, 2020).


At the Vienna School of International Studies, I teach the core course of ‘International history, 1789-1945.’
