Prof. Dr. Jens Steffek
I joined the Institute for Political Science in 2010 as Professor of Transnational Governance. From 2017 to 2019 I was also Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and History. I studied political science, sociology and geography at the University of Munich (MA, 1998) and completed my doctoral dissertation at the European University Institute in Florence / Italy (2002). Before coming to Darmstadt I worked at the University of Bremen, Jacobs University and the Robert-Schuman-Centre for Advanced Studies. I was a visiting professor at the University of Pavia, LUISS Guido Carli (Rome) and the Max-Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg. As research fellow I visited the University of Cambridge, the University of Montréal and the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin (WZB). I have a wide range of research interests that include international organizations (both public and private), the history of international thought and international political theory. I am currently completing a book manuscript on the history of technocratic blueprints for world order.
