Kirsten Haack, Associate Professor in International Politics
Kirsten researches international organisations, their governance and role in global order. She is interested in how global order is created and communicated through international organisations, specifically the United Nations, and focuses on questions of leadership, norm development, the politics of international law and the question of representation in various forms. Most recently she has explored the role of the UN Secretary-General and women executive heads, to understand their role, contribution to agenda development, and women’s increasing representation in leadership. She is currently working on visual diplomacy and the question of how states communicate their relationship to the UN and its goals through objects and spaces.
