My name is Henriette Müller and I am a Humanities Research Fellow at the NYUAD Institute at New York University Abu Dhabi.
My research fields comprise the comparative study of political leadership and executive politics in supranational and international organizations as well as of national governments with a particular focus on political performance, political communication and representations of leadership. I am also interested in methodology and qualitative research methods such as case study analysis and elite-interviewing.
My current projects examine the relationship between political leadership and national economic growth with a particular focus on the Arab Gulf region, Western Europe and Southeast Asia. I am also interested in forms of female leadership across the GCC states, and additionally study patterns of performance of European leaders in the European Union.
