    Personal profile

    Biographical details


    Dr Marc Schelhase is a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Defence Studies Department, King’s College London at the Joint Services Command and Staff College, UK Defence Academy, where he is the Programme Director of the MSc in Defence Innovation. From 2009 to 2020 he was also a Visiting Professor in the Analysis and Management of Political Risk at the College of Europe, Bruges, Belgium. Dr Schelhase holds a BA and MA in International Relations from Keele University and a PhD in Politics and International Studies from the University of Warwick.  

    Dr Schelhase’s background is in political economy. He has recently published his second book, The Political Economy of Risk in Finance and the Military (Palgrave Macmillan, 2023). The book explores risk through the societal, organisational and personal dimensions to reveal often conflicting and shifting understandings of risk. It demonstrates the challenges, dilemmas and - in many ways - also the impossibilities of risk analysis and risk management. His first book, Globalization, Regionalization and Business: Conflict, Convergence and Influence, investigates the role played by organised business interests in processes of regionalisation and globalisation in the Americas.

    Dr Schelhase sits on the Steering Committee of the Control and Risk Self Assessment Forum.
