Simon Shargi-Erdmosa

I am currently pursuing a Master’s Program at Sciences Po Paris in International Security. My
academic interests focus on the evolving notion of security in the context of foreign direct
investment. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in European Studies from Maastricht University, where my
studies were centred on analysing the European response amidst evolving geo-economic
My research efforts were dedicated to uncover the motives underlying Germany’s decision to
tighten its investment screening mechanism post-2017. Additionally, I conducted extensive
quantitative analysis, scrutinising non-EU foreign direct investments in EU member states to
discern the resulting security implications.
In parallel with my academic endeavours, I have gathered professional experience through
internships at the European Commission and tech startups. These experiences have equipped me
with a comprehensive understanding of both public and private sector dynamics.
