Dr. Ian Hurd is assistant professor of political science at Northwestern University. He specializes in international relations and his research is on the role of international organizations in world politics, with particular emphasis on how legitimacy and legitimation operate in the international system. His research on legitimation in the context of the United Nations Security Council has appeared in International Organization, Global Governance, and Foreign Affairs. He is also interested in how international organizations interact with firms, states and NGOs in the international political economy on issues such as international labor standards. He is an honors graduate of Carlton University in Ottawa, Canada and obtained his MA and PhD in international relations from Yale.

Dr. Charles Lipson teaches international relations at the University of Chicago, where he is a professor of political science. His research deals with international cooperation and conflict and with political aspects of the world economy. His most recent book, Reliable Partners: How Democracies Have Made a Separate Peace, explains one of the most striking features in international relations: why democracies do not fight wars against each other. He is currently writing a book on the history of international politics in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Lipson has chaired several major programs at the University and is the founding director of PIPES, the Program on International Politics, Economics, and Security. He graduated from Yale and received his MA and PhD from Harvard University, where he won the Chase Prize in International Relations.
