Emmanuel Mourlon-Druol is Pinto Post-Doctoral Fellow at LSE IDEAS – the London School of Economics’ centre for the study of international affairs, diplomacy and strategy. My research interests focus on two interconnected strands. One is the study of European monetary cooperation in the 1970s, up until the creation of the European Monetary System (EMS) in 1979, which was the focus of my thesis. The other is the rise of summitry in the mid-1970s up until the late 1980s, and in particular the study of two fora, the European Council and the G7.
