Charalampos' research interests focus on the diplomacy of emerging powers in global governance. His research examines the relocation of emerging powers in international institutions, and specifically in the World Trade Organisations, the International Financial Institutions, and the United Nations Security Council. Charalampos specialises in the foreign policy of India and South Africa, and in particular the capacity of these states to act as leaders of the global South and operate as bridge-builders in multilateral negotiations. His research also focuses on the relevance of different theories, such as middle power approaches, for understanding the rise of Southern powers.
