Terrence Hopmann

"Prior to assuming the position of Director of the Conflict Management Program at SAIS in July 2008, Professor Hopmann was Professor of Political Science at Brown University, where he served as chair of the Political Science Department, and Research Director of the Program on Global Security of the Thomas J. Watson Jr. Institute for International Studies, director of the Center for Foreign Policy Development, and director of the International Relations Program.

"Hopmann received his B. A. in 1964 from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and his Ph.D. in Political Science in 1969 from Stanford University.

"Professor Hopmann's primary research and teaching interests concern international negotiation and conflict resolution, and his major book entitled The Negotiation Process and the Resolution of International Conflicts was published by the University of South Carolina Press in 1996. He is also the author of numerous theoretical articles on the negotiation and conflict resolution process, especially on the application of behavioral science concepts to the study and analysis of international diplomacy. He is co-author with Daniel Druckman of "Behavioral Aspects of Negotiations on Mutual Security," in Philip E. Tetlock et al. (eds.), Behavior, Society and Nuclear War, Vol. 1 (Oxford University Press, 1991).

"His substantive research focus has been primarily on issues of security in Europe, especially on negotiations on Conventional Forces in Europe and in the Organization on Security and Cooperation in Europe. His monograph on Building Security in Post-Cold War Eurasia: The OSCE and U.S. Foreign Policy was published by the US Institute of Peace in its Peaceworks series in 1999. He also completed a major study on “The OSCE: Its Contribution to Conflict Prevention and Resolution” for the National Academy of Sciences included in their volume on International Conflict Resolution after the Cold War (National Academy Press, 2000). He is also in the process of writing a larger book exploring the full range of OSCE activities in conflict prevention, management, and resolution and post-conflict security-building since the end of the Cold War.

"Hopmann's research recently focused as well on the security implications of the disintegration of the Soviet empire and of the developing relations among the semi-sovereign entities that have emerged from the former Soviet Union across a broad range of issues. He is co-author of a monograph based on this program entitled Integration and Disintegration in the Former Soviet Union: Implications for Regional and Global Security" published as an occasional paper by the Watson Institute, and he is currently editing a book based on this project. He is also principal investigator of a project supported by the Program on the Prevention of Deadly Conflicts of the Carnegie Corporation of New York entitled "The Management of Disintegration in the Former Soviet Union: Can Deadly Conflicts Be Prevented?"

"Professor Hopmann’s recent articles on arms control include "From MBFR to CFE: Negotiating Conventional Arms Control in Europe," in Richard Dean Burns (ed.), Encyclopedia of Arms Control and Disarmament (Scribner's, 1993); "Arms Control and Arms Reductions, View I," in Victor A Kremenyuk (ed.), International Negotiations: Analysis, Approaches, Issues (Jossey-Bass, 1991); and "Mutual Security and Arms Reductions in Europe," in Richard Smoke and Andrei Kortunov (eds.), Mutual Security: A New Approach to Soviet-American Relations (St. Martin's Press, 1991).

"He has been a research fellow of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Geneva and twice has been a Fulbright-Hays fellow in Belgium. He served from 1984-92 as a frequent consultant to the United Nations Development Programme and the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, to the Foreign Ministries of Mexico and Brazil, and to the United Nations University for Peace in Costa Rica."
