Jochen Prantl
Former Visiting Senior Fellow and Coordinator of the Energy Security Programme
Energy and Human Security Programme
(November 2010 - October 2011)





Jochen Prantl was formerly Visiting Senior Fellow and Coordinator of the Energy Security Programme at the Centre for Non-Traditional Security (NTS) Studies in the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), Nanyang Technological University.  He is Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford.  Dr Prantl's research aims at developing key concepts of global security governance that can be used more widely.  Supported by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the British Academy, and other funding authorities, he directed a multi-year research programme (2007-2010) that looked in particular into cross-institutional and cross-regional comparisons of the dynamic relationship between formal and informal institutions in the management of risk and the resolution of conflict.  Major publications include a piece in International Organization as well as a book-length treatment, published by Oxford University Press.  Dr Prantl is currently in the process of completing another single-authored monograph, Whither Liberal Institutions? European Union, NATO, and United Nations, which presents key findings of his multi-year research project. The previously well-established authority of these core liberal institutions has become challenged and epitomises what essentially constitutes a sustained contestation process of Western liberal order. The central research question of the book is therefore as follows: How to cooperate under conditions of changing global order?  The book is scheduled for publication in early 2012.


In 2007, Jochen Prantl was chosen to be the inaugural recipient of the Zvi Meitar/Vice-Chancellor Oxford University Research Prize in the Social Sciences, and in 2008, he was selected as Oxford University's nominee for the AXA Prize for Innovative Research.  The Vice-Chancellor Research Prize facilitated the establishment of a network of scholars who examine the broader problems related to multilateralism with a particular focus on East Asia.  The findings of his collaborative research will be disseminated through an edited volume, Effective Multilateralism: Through the Looking Glass of East Asia, published by the St Antony’s Series of Palgrave Macmillan in 2011.  The editors of the academic journal, Global Governance, have invited Dr Prantl to edit a special focus (50,000 words) on Multilateralism in East Asia, which is slated for 2012.


Dr Prantl was a Visiting Fellow in the UN Studies Programme at Yale University, an International Fellow in the 21st Century Center of Excellence Program at Waseda University in Tokyo, and a Visiting Fellow at the Strategy and Defence Studies Centre at the Australian National University in Canberra.  He also served in the Policy Planning Unit of the UN Department of Political Affairs and the Delegation of the European Commission to the United Nations in New York.  Dr Prantl holds degrees in Political Science, Spanish, and History of Art from the University of Bonn (M.A.) and in International Relations from the University of Oxford (D.Phil.).
