Prof. Antje Wiener awarded Membership of the Academia Europaea

The Academia Europaea is the pan-European Academy of Humanities, Letters, Law, and Sciences. Founded in 1988, it elects members each year in recognition of exceptional achievements in research and academia. 

The organisation counts around 4,000 eminent scholars from across Europe in its membership and has a rigorous selection process in place.

Prof. Wiener is a By-Fellow of Hughes Hall and a professor of Political Science at the University of Hamburg. Between 2016 and 2018 she was a Visiting Fellow at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law specialising in “The Common Language of International Relations: Forging Dialogue in Contested Norms in Law and Politics”.

This research subsequently generated a number of publications and distinctions and her book Contestation and Constitution of Norms in Global International Relations was published with Cambridge University Press in 2018.

The book was awarded the 2020 Book Award of the International Studies Association’s International Law Section and was also added to the prestigious top ten readings of the International Affairs Christmas list in 2019.
