Jeremy Youde

Jeremy Youde is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of International Relations in the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs at the Australian National University. In July, he will join the University of Minnesota Duluth as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Professor of Political Science.

Jeremy’s research focuses on questions of global health governance and global health politics. He is the author of four books and co-editor of two volumes. He has published more than 30 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in a wide variety of outlets and is a member of the editorial board of Global Health Governance. He is also Chair of the Global Health Section of the International Studies Association and a member of ISA’s Governing Council and Professional Development Committee. His book, Global Health Governance and International Society, was published by Oxford University Press in 2018, and his latest book, Globalization and Health, will be published by Rowman and Littlefield in August 2019. He is also co-editor of the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Global Health Politics.

His current research centres on questions of global responses to transnational health issues. In particular, he is interested in understanding the conditions under which states and non-state actors are willing to collaborate to address infectious disease outbreaks and to sustain international organisations and regimes focused on global health. This takes the form of researching the processes of norm internalisation within the International Health Regulations, examining efforts to reform the World Health Organization in the aftermath of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, and considering the role of the English School’s notion of international society in explaining the emergence of global health cooperation over the past generation.

Jeremy earned his BA in political science and global development studies at Grinnell College and his MA and PhD in political science at the University of Iowa. You can follow him on Twitter at @jeremyyoude.
