Daniel W. Drezner (born August 28, 1968)[1] is an American professor of international politics at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, an author of books and op-ed pieces, a blogger, and a commentator.

Drezner is also a nonresident senior fellow at the Project on International Order and Strategy at the Brookings Institution.[2]


Drezner graduated from Williams College with a B.A. in 1990. He received his M.A. and Ph.D. degree from Stanford University.[3]

Political views[edit]

Drezner rarely discusses his political loyalties, but in 2011 he wrote: "I find liberals write 'even conservative Dan Drezner...' while conservatives often deploy terms like 'academic elitist' or 'RINO.' In my case, at this point in time, I believe that last appellation to be entirely fair and accurate. I'm not a Democrat, and I don't think I've become more liberal over time."[4]

Media contributions[edit]

Drezner has published columns, essays, and op-eds in many media outlets, including The New Republic,[5] Foreign Affairs,[6] Foreign Policy,[7] the New York Times, Slate,[8] Tech Central Station, and the Wall Street Journal, among others. He has also been a frequent guest on Bloggingheads.tv and various other broadcast media. Drezner originally blogged on his website, DanielDrezner.com, but moved in January 2009 to become a contributing blogger at ForeignPolicy.com.[9]

Drezner has moderated and spoken at various Council on Foreign Relations events.[10]
