Dr Harry Bauer

Teaching Fellow in International Relations


Harry Bauer completed his research for a PhD in International Relations at the LSE and holds an MA in Politics, Sociology and German Literature from the University of Trier, Germany. Harry was previously Editor of Millennium: Journal of International Studies and worked as International Associate Editor for openDemocracy. He taught and supervised extensively at the Universities of Trier, Mannheim and the LSE. In 2009/10, Harry was a SIAS Fellow for 'Action Theory in Philosophy and the Social Sciences'.

Harry's research interests include the intersection of International Relations theory and social as well as political theory, globalisation, environmental governance and non-state actors in international relations. He previously published on the complex relationships between environmental NGOs and business and on the potential of American pragmatism for theory and practice of IR (Pragmatism and International Relations, Routledge 2009). Harry's current research centers around the effect of organisational cultures on the activities of environmental NGOs and the implications of a fundamental re-reading of theories of action for IR.
