CHRISTOPHER HILL is the Wilson E. Schmidt Distinguished Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). He is Emeritus Professor of International Relations in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Cambridge and prior to that was the Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics. Hill is the author of many books in the areas of foreign policy analysis and general international relations, including most recently The National Interest in Question: Foreign Policy in Multicultural Societies (Oxford University Press, 2013) and International Relations and the European Union (edited with Michael Smith and Sophie Vanhoonacker, Oxford University Press, 2017).

Hill’s research focuses on foreign policy analysis and the international politics of Europe (including both the EU’s exter­nal relations and the foreign policies of the Member States), as well as general international relations, theories and practice. He continues to work on the subject of his recent book, that is the relationship between social diversity and international relations, and is extending this into the international politics of migration.
