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]

Drezner supported the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, writing that "a successful invasion not only eliminates the Iraqi threat, but over the long run it reduces the Arab resentment that feeds Al-Qaeda."[5]

Drezner was a signatory to a March 2016 open letter by Republican national security community members that opposed Donald Trump as Republican nominee for U.S. President.[6]

Media contributions[edit]

Drezner has published columns, essays, and op-eds in many media outlets, including The New Republic,[7] Foreign Affairs,[8] Foreign Policy,[9] the New York Times, Slate,[10] 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.[11]

Drezner has moderated and spoken at various Council on Foreign Relations events.[12]
