Janick Marina Schaufelbuehl

Janick Marina Schaufelbuehl is associate professor of international history at the University of Lausanne. She received her Ph.D. in history from the Universities of Paris VIII and of Lausanne, was a post-doctoral researcher at Georgetown University and the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS). In 2017–18 she held a fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Study. Her current research focuses on the role of U.S. business interests in international politics, Cold War history, and the economic history of Europe and the United States.

At CES, Schaufelbuehl will work on a project that aims to explain how, and with what success, American business organized, adapted its outlook, and shaped public policy as a response to the emergence of a unified Europe. Based on extensive archival sources, the research aims to examine the power of business to influence politics in the international arena and transatlantic relations. By factoring in the cardinal part played by the corporate class, it allows for a new understanding of U.S. support for the integration of Western European capitalism.

Her books include Europe and China in the Cold War: Exchanges beyond the Bloc Logic and the Sino-Soviet Split (Brill, co-edited in 2019); Between or Within the Blocs? Neutrality and Neutralism in the Global Cold War (Routledge, co-edited in 2016); La France et la Suisse ou la force du petit. Évasion fiscale, relations commerciales et financières (1940–1954) (Presses de Sciences Po, 2009).
