Dr Cornelia Navari

Dr Cornelia Navari, Visiting Professor at the University of Buckingham, top UK university for student satisfactionDr. Navari began her career in the US State Department as a broadcaster and feature writer for the US Information Agency. After completing her MSc (Econ) at the London School of Economics she joined Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, as assistant on the Survey and Documents, then an annual production of the Institute. She joined the University of Birmingham in 1972 where she designed the graduate professional programmes in International Studies. Her original specialisms were security studies, European integration and research method, but in her later career she has turned to a consideration of international law for International Studies students. She is well acquainted with a range of international organisations.

Dr Navari’s PhD thesis was on The State and International Relations: Concepts and Practice. Her publications include Chatham House and British Foreign Policy during the Inter-War Period (with Andrea Bosco, Lothian Foundation Press, 1994), British Politics and the Spirit of the Age: Political Concepts in Action (Keele University Press, 1996), Internationalism and the State in the 20th Century (Routledge, 2000) and Public Intellectuals and International Affairs (Republic of Letters, 2013).

She currently heads the English School section of the International Studies Association and has edited the Guide to the English School in International Studies (Wiley Blackwell, 2014). Her current research is into international regulatory regimes and involves several linked projects covering regime development. Her first professor at Birmingham was Harry Ferns who, in 1969, wrote the paper “Towards an Independent University”, which led directly to the founding of the University College at Buckingham, soon to become the University of Buckingham.
