My name is Markus Kornprobst and I am a Professor of International Relations at the Vienna School of International Studies (Diplomatische Akademie Wien, École des Hautes Études Internationales de Vienne). Having previously researched and taught at the Ohio State University, Oxford University and University College London, I specialize on international relations theory, diplomacy, and peace and security. My research appears in leading academic journals and I have thus far published eight books. I am the author of Co-managing International Crises (Cambridge University Press 2019), Irredentism in European Politics (Cambridge University Press, 2008) and co-author of Understanding International Diplomacy (Routledge, 2013 and 2018). Furthermore, I co-edited Cognitive Evolution and World Ordering (Cambridge University Press, 2021), Diplomacy and Borderlands (Routledge, 2020), Communication, Legitimation and Morality in Modern Politics (Routledge, 2018), Arguing Global Governance (Routledge, 2010) and Metaphors of Globalization (Palgrave, 2007).
My current research projects deal with processes of global ordering, peaceful change, diplomacy, arms control, digital international relations, and global health. At the Vienna School of International Studies, I teach our graduate students on methodology, international relations theory, diplomacy and negotiation, and serve as Dean of the Master of Advanced International Studies, which our School offers jointly with the University of Vienna. I also supervise students enrolled in our joint doctoral programme with the University of Vienna. I regularly give public lectures in Europe and elsewhere and conduct executive training seminars for diplomats.
