Kimberly Hutchings is Professor of Politics and International Relations at Queen Mary University of London.

She is a leading scholar in international relations theory. She has extensively researched and published on international political theory in respect to Kantian and Hegelian philosophy, international and global ethics, Feminist theory and philosophy, and politics and violence. Her work is influenced by the scholarly tradition that produced the Frankfurt School and Critical Theory.

She is the author of Kant, Critique and Politics, International Political Theory: rethinking ethics in a global era, Hegel and Feminist Philosophy and Time and World Politics: thinking the present. Her current focus is on the areas of global ethics, assumptions about time and history in theories of international relations, and the conceptual relationship between politics and violence in Western political thought.

Prior to moving to Queen Mary in the summer of 2014, she worked as Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics, acting as Head of Department from 2010 to 2013. She served as Reader at the same institution from 2003 to 2007. Hutchings was only the third woman to hold a professorial position in the Department of International Relations at the LSE (after Susan Strange and Margot Light) when awarded the position in 2007. From 1995 to 2002, she was Senior Lecturer in Political Theory at The University of Edinburgh's Graduate School of Social and Political Studies. Prior to that, she was a Lecturer in Philosophy in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Wolverhampton.

She completed her PhD at the University of Sussex under the supervision of Gillian Rose.
