Luxembourgish and European Politics
In 2023, Luxembourg finds itself at a crucial juncture, marked by two significant elections: the municipal elections in June and the legislative elections in October.

She participates in the ESRC-funded project Negotiating Brexit: EU institutions, national governments, and the UK (2017-2019).The project aims to provide independent analysis of the Brexit negotiations to the general public and will also result in research publications. She is also a member of the steering group of the EU-funded VIADUCT project on EU-Turkey relations (2017-2020), for which she is currently setting up an online student paper series.
She works on Luxembourgish politics as part of the C2ESS project (Challenges to European Small States, 2018-2021) and on the legitimacy of central bank decisions as part of the EMULEG project (2021-2024).

The University of Luxembourg Diplomacy Lab aims to provide practical insights into diplomacy and international relations. The lab focuses on students’ professional development and allows them to work on topics and skills that interest them.
Professor Anna-Lena Högenauer emphasised that the Diplomacy Lab is student centered: “It is officially directed by HE Diego Brasioli, but is really by and for the students, focusing on their professional development, and working together on the topics and skills that interest them”.
