Michael Hilton Smith

Biography

Professor of European Politics and Jean Monnet Chair in the Department of Politics, History and International Relations at Loughborough University since 1994. Currently I am also Co-Director of two centres bassed in the Department: the Centre for the Study of International Governance and the East Midlands Eurocentre, a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence. I was previously Professor of International Studies and Dean of the School of International Studies and law at Coventry University.

My principal areas of research are transatlantic relations, relations between the EU, the US and Asia, the making of EU external policies and the role of the EU in post-Cold War Europe and global governance, as well as more general issues of foreign policy and international political economy. Recent and current projects include work on role-theoretical approaches to the EU in international politics, regime analysis and the EU’s role in global governance, the EU’s role in European and international order, the evolution and functioning of the EU’s diplomatic system, EU relations with Asia, and the study of competition and convergence between the EU and the US in the global arena. See my list of publications for further details.

I teach on the following modules in the Dept. of Politics, History and International Relations: The Contemporary World Arena (Year 1 undergraduate), The EU and the United States (Final Year undergraduate). I have recently supervised or am currently supervising research students working on EU relations with China, on Turkey’s relations with the EU, on the role of the public sphere in EU foreign policy and on the role of non-elected officials in the framing of EU diplomacy.

I was Chair of the University Association for Contemporary European Studies from 1994-1997, and of the Standing Conference of Heads of European Studies from 2000-2002. I was also Chair of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) Sub-Panel for European Studies, and a member of the Expert Advisory Group on the Research Excellence Framework in 2009-2010. I have also carried out research evaluation for the Economic and Social Research Council and a range of other funding bodies, and for a wide range of academic institutions.

In 2010, I received the Award for Lifetime Achievement in Contemporary European Studies from the University Association for Contemporary European Studies, the UK professional association for academics working in this field.
