    Andrew Moravcsik



    Moravcsik writes on European integration, global human rights, negotiation analysis, international organization, international relations theory, US and West European foreign policy, transatlantic relations, and defense-industrial globalization. His analytical history of the European Union, The Choice for Europe: Social Purpose and State Power from Messina to Maastricht (1998), has been called "the most important work in the field." (American Historical Review) He edited and contributed to Europe beyond Illusions (2005) and Between Centralization and Fragmentation (1998), which reports the results of a Council on Foreign Relations Study Group he co-directed. He has published over 125 scholarly articles, chapters and reviews. Forthcoming books include a volume of essays, an analytical history of international human rights regimes, a study of the democratic legitimacy of international organizations, an analysis of the current state of European integration, and a reader on European politics. His policy commentary appears regularly in Newsweek and occasionally in other public affairs publications in 17 languages, including Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy. He is a Non-resident Senior Fellow of the Brookings Institution, with which he has participated in several projects, and has served on various policy panels and commissions-most recently the Council on Foreign Relations Task Force on the Future of Transatlantic Relations (the "Kissinger Summers Task Force"). He has received awards from the Fulbright Foundation, the German Marshall Fund, the Krupp Foundation and other institutions. Before entering academia, he served as trade negotiator for the US government, special assistant to the Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea, and editor of a foreign policy journal in Washington DC. He holds a public policy degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. He writes occasionally on opera history and performance. Until 2004, he taught at Harvard University. PhD, Harvard.
