On Thursday, 12 October 2017, I successfully defended my PhD Thesis Mapping the Transnational World: Towards a Comparative Sociology of Regional Integration. The examination board, consisting of Prof. Dr. Jan Delhey, Prof. Dr. Steffen Mau, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Gerhards, Prof. Dr. Johannes Huinink, Dr. Franziska Deutsch, Dr. Arndt Wonka, and Ms. Nora Waitkus, unanimously decided on a "pass with distinction". I would like to thank everyone involved for their commitment.
