Wilson School names Germany's Joschka Fischer visiting lecturer

The Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs has announced that Joschka Fischer, Germany's minister of foreign affairs from 1998 to 2005 and a member of the German national parliament, will join the school's faculty for a one-year appointment beginning in September 2006 as the Frederick H. Schultz Class of 1951 Professor of International Economic Policy, with the rank of lecturer of public and international affairs.

This fall Fischer, 58, is scheduled to teach the undergraduate course "International Crisis Diplomacy" with Wilson School lecturer Wolfgang Danspeckgruber. In spring 2007 Fischer is scheduled to co-teach with Wilson School Diplomat-in-Residence Ambassador Robert Hutchings and Princeton University politics professor Andrew Moravcsik an international relations graduate seminar on Europe, America and future policy challenges facing the transatlantic alliance.

In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Fischer will serve as a senior fellow at the Wilson School's Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination and as a fellow at Princeton's European Union Program.
