Patrick Quinton-Brown

Senior College Lecturer; Departmental Lecturer in International Relations 


PPE Course


I teach undergraduate papers in International Relations, including the core paper (214) as well as the specialist papers International Relations in the Era of the Cold War (213) and International Relations in the Era of Two World Wars (212). I also supervise graduate students and teach MPhil/DPhil classes on international relations theory and methods.


My research interests include theories of global order and governance; international institutions and organisations; interpretive and postcolonial approaches; and the Global South in historical international society. Recently I have written articles on the contestation of the Responsibility to Protect principle in the United Nations, on revolutionist internationalisms in the Cold War, and on the meanings of humanitarian intervention. I am also completing a book, Intervention before Interventionism: Contestation and Decolonization in Global Order, currently under contract with Oxford University Press.
