Tim Dunne is Professor of International Relations at the University of Queensland (UQ) where he co-directs the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (AP R2P).
His main responsibility is to provide research leadership in the Centre and to configure activity such that ‘deliverables’ are met in relation to research, policy-impact, training, and advocacy.
Before moving to Queensland, he was Professor of International Relations, Head of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, then Dean of the Social Sciences at the University of Exeter (2003-2010). He began his career at the University of Wales in Aberystwyth, famous for being the oldest and one of the very best departments of IR in the world.
Tim has extensive experience as an editor, including the European Journal of International Relations (2008-2013 A* journal in ERA ranking); the Review of International Studies (A journal in ERA ranking); and two major Oxford University Press textbooks that have shaped the teaching of IR in theory and foreign policy analysis, both with new editions in 2012.
