Amélie Wurl is a social scientist interested in the role of China in Africa and it’s political implications.

In 2020, Amélie joined the Knowledge Exchange Lab (KEL) at the Cluster of Excellence Contestations of the Liberal Script (SCRIPTS) at Freie Universität Berlin. Within this framework, she is currently seconded to the Federal Foreign Office’s Directorate General 3 where she serves as an interface between foreign policy practice and the Cluster’s research.

In parallel, Amélie is a doctoral researcher at the Berlin Graduate School for Global and Transregional Studies (BGTS). Her dissertation focusses on political discourses in selected countries on the African continent, where she asks how Chinese and European political concepts are both perceived and how political elites make sense of them. Her research interests lie in particular on Sino-African relations, EU-Africa relations and the dynamics of international political party-exchanges.

Amélie has graduated both at Sciences Po Bordeaux and the University of Stuttgart in 2018. With a regional academic focus on Africa, she continued her postgraduate studies in 2019 at the Social Science Faculty of Sorbonne Paris V where she was interested in education systems in Western Africa.
