Andrew Hurrell was Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at Oxford University until May 2021. He is now a Senior Research Fellow at Balliol College, an Einstein Visiting Fellow in Berlin, and a Senior Fellow at the Law Faculty in Humboldt University.
He was elected to the Johns Hopkins Society of Scholars in 2011 and to the British Academy in 2011. In 2015 he received the Susan Strange Prize from the International Studies Association, which is awarded for ‘challenging the conventional wisdom and organizational complacency of the international studies community’.
His academic career has been driven by two core intellectual concerns: one focused on the nature and possibilities of order in international life; the second on the changing global character of international politics and the contestation that has resulted from hierarchy and inequality on the one hand and value and cultural diversity on the other.
