Politics and International Relations (PIR): News


Collaborator with Edinburgh Politics/ IR appointed Finnish Foreign Minister

The co-editor of a textbook recently published by 2 Edinburgh Politics and IR colleagues was recently named as Foreign Minister of Finland. 

The European Union:  How does it Work?’, co-edited by Elizabeth Bomberg and John Peterson of Edinburgh Politics and IR was published earlier this year by Oxford University Press.  It is designed to be the very first book that is assigned to students trying to make sense of the EU.  Elizabeth and John’s co-editor, Alexander Stubb, was until recently a member of the European Parliament.  In April 2008, Alex was appointed Foreign Minister of Finland, at the tender age of 40.  All at Edinburgh Politics and IR wish Alex warmest congratulations and best of luck in his new post.
