What Others Say

Since our founding in 2008, E-International Relations has established a global reputation among academics and practitioners for the compelling content and debate which it provides.

Peter Vale, Professor of Humanities, University of Johannesburg; Nelson Mandela Chair in Politics Emeritus, Rhodes University:

E-International Relations may be the moment of democratization for International Relations – at last, a platform on which an informed conversation can take place and every voice heard.

Anne-Marie Slaughter, Bert G. Kerstetter ’66 University Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University:

E-International Relations is terrific
– just what the field needs!

Michael W. Mosser, Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science at Southwestern University:

For scholars seeking to make an immediate impact with new research or informed opinion, E-International Relations provides a venue second to none. Its model of open access and unfettered discussion can only serve to advance the cause of contemporary policy-relevant international relations scholarship. It is the very epitome of ‘applied academics’ and should be on everyone’s list of academic bookmarks.

Daryl Copeland, Professor and Senior Fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto:

E-International Relations provides a refreshing alternative to the few dozen institutionally branded and well-financed sites that dominate the world of web-based analysis and commentary on international relations. The continuing success of this non-commercial, venture is good news for scholars and practitioners alike.

Marta Dyczok, Associate Professor, Departments of History and Political Science, University of Western Ontario:

In today’s volatile and fast moving world, it is important to understand how things really work on the global stage. E-International Relations brings together scholars and practitioners from around the world to explain key issues, concepts and dynamics from a variety of perspectives in clear and accessible language.

Duncan Bell, Lecturer of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge:

E-International Relations is an extremely valuable resource for students of International Relations. Methodologically pluralistic, theoretically ecumenical, and politically diverse, it provides access to a wide range of competing viewpoints about some of the most pressing issues facing citizens and scholars today. Long may it thrive.

Giulio Gallarotti, Professor of Government in the College of Social Studies at Wesleyan University:

E-International Relations has brought the study of international relations into the digital age. If it did not exist, it would have to be invented.

Robert W. Murray, Adjunct Professor of Political Science at the University of Alberta, Canada:

Among the most appealing elements of E-International Relations is that it brings students of all levels together with professional scholars in an open, relaxed, but sophisticated arena. Rather than the typically sleep-inducing arguments produced in journals, or the often outdated nature of book volumes on subjects of global interest, E-International Relations has dedicated itself to being fresh, innovative and extremely timely.

M.L.R. Smith, Professor of Strategic Theory, King’s College London, University of London:

E-International Relations is one of the most innovative forums for lively, yet mature, discussions of international issues and problems that I have come across. It presents thoughtful and timely contributions often free from a great deal of stifling theoretical orthodoxy that constrains free, open-handed thinking in much of the rest of the discipline. I often turn first to E-IR for what is new and interesting in the sphere of international studies before looking at academic journals or the latest books

Dan G. Cox, Professor of Political Science, U. S. Army School of Advanced Military Studies:

While other journals and websites are closed systems usually motivated by profit, E-International Relations distinguishes itself as an open and free forum for the civil exchange of scholarly ideas. No one is excluded and this only adds richness to the discourse.

Margaret MacMillan, Warden of St. Antony’s College, Oxford University:

It is a pleasure to find such a well-organized, informative and interesting website amidst all the chatter on the internet. E-International Relations is a marvellous resource and forum for debate.

Harvey Sapolsky, Professor of Public Policy and Organization Emeritus at MIT:

E-International Relations is the place for an informed, spirited, and thoroughly civil discussion of international relations theory and practice with a special appeal for young scholars.

Sir Brian Barder KCMG, former British ambassador to Ethiopia and Poland and high commissioner in Nigeria and Australia:

E-International Relations is an invaluable resource, not only for university students – many of us are life-long students of international relations. As a long retired former diplomat with nearly 40 years’ experience in international affairs, I find the only drawback to browsing  is that I’m liable to find myself spending half the day reading (and itching to respond to) much of its material. May it continue to flourish.’

Steve Smith, Vice-Chancellor, University of Exeter:

E-International Relations is a fascinating web site that will be of interest not just to students of international relations but also to anyone interested in world politics.

Jamsheed K. Choksy, Professor of Iranian, Indian, Islamic, and International Studies, Indiana University:

E-International Relations provides readers with much-needed, highly-pertinent, constantly-insightful, analyses of issues that shape our world.
