Philip Terrence Hopmann
Professor of International Relations


P. Terrence Hopmann is Professor of International Relations in the Conflict Management Program at SAIS, where he served as program director from 2008-15. He works primarily in the areas of international security, negotiation, and conflict management. His research focuses on theories of international negotiation and conflict resolution; on negotiations on arms control and disarmament, primarily in Europe; and on the role of international institutions, especially the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), in promoting good governance, human rights, and conflict management in the former Soviet states and the Balkans since the end of the Cold War. More than 40 years of research on the CSCE/OSCE are the focus of a book manuscript that he is currently writing tentatively titled, “An End to the Beginning of All Wars: The OSCE Role in Conflict Management Since the End of the Cold War".

Prior to joining SAIS in 2008, Hopmann was Professor of Political Science at Brown University from 1985-2008, where he served as Chair of Political Science from 2005 through June 2008.  There he also directed the International Relations Program, the Center for Foreign Policy Development, and the Global Security Program in the Thomas J. Watson Jr. Institute of International Studies.

In academic year 2004-05 he was a Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC, and in the spring and summer of 2005 he was Fulbright Visiting Professor at the Vienna Diplomatic Academy in Vienna, Austria.  There he participated in preparing a report coordinated by the Centre for OSCE Research at the University of Hamburg as part of a process of evaluating reform of the OSCE. He was also a featured speaker at an event in Helsinki organized by the Foreign Minister of Finland to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Helsinki Final Act in 1975.

In academic year 1997-98, Hopmann was recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in Vienna, Austria, and of a Jennings Randolph Senior Fellowship at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington, DC., where he conducted research and writing on the role of the OSCE in conflict management in the former Soviet Union and the Balkans region.
