Politics and International Relations (PIR): News


John Peterson visits University of California

Our Professor of International Politics, John Peterson, is spending summer 2010 as a Visiting Scholar at the Institute of Governmental Studies, University of California (Berkeley). He has been in residence at IGS numerous times in the past, starting in 1998.

While at Berkeley, John will be working (inter alia) on his forthcoming book ‘Parochial Global Europe: the Politics of EU Trade Policy’ (co-authored with Alasdair Young), forthcoming with Oxford University Press. He also will be writing up findings from ‘The Commission of the 21st Century’ project, which generated the largest data set ever compiled on the attitudes of European Union Commission officials. 

 John is on sabbatical leave during academic year 2010-11. Mark Aspinwall takes over as Head of Politics and IR on 1 August 2010.
