Short summary

Dr. Stephen Paul Haigh has lived in North America, Asia, Micronesia, Oceania, and Europe; prior to Leiden he taught at universities in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, the United States, and at the VU in Amsterdam in 2020. He has worked in the private and not-for-profit sectors, and in public service as an international policy analyst for both the Government of Canada and the United Nations. His 2013 book Future States: From International to Global Political Order (Routledge UK), examines the impact of complex interdependence on the system of sovereign states.

He is an enthusiastic sportsperson, and has a related, sideline interest in sport and foreign policy—a subject on which he co-edited a volume titled Sport and Foreign Policy in a Globalizing World (also with Routledge UK).
