According to TUM, this honorary title and non-teaching affiliation honors “internationally outstanding scientists who have developed a field of science in a leading way and who collaborate with their TUM colleagues on a long-term basis.”

Moravcsik is the founder and primary scholar of the theory of “liberal intergovernmentalism,” and other liberal theories in international relations. He has authored more than 125 scholarly publications, including four books. He also publishes public commentary on world affairs, as well as scholarly and popular writings on classical music, especially opera.

“In a time when we are rethinking transatlantic relations, I very much appreciate this opportunity to expand our research and teaching collaboration with colleagues in Munich, especially those in its school of public policy,” Moravcsik said. “I am honored by the recognition, and I look forward to fostering engagement by Princeton students and faculty in this important partnership.”

Moravcsik will be honored at the TUM School of Governance awards ceremony on Oct. 1.
