Tim Hayward (born 1955) is professor of environmental political theory at the University of Edinburgh and director of the university's Just World Institute.[1]

WithPiers Robinson formerly of the University of Sheffield, he is a member of the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media.[2] In April 2018, The Times alleged that the group was spreading "disinformation" favouring the line of the government of Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian Civil War. Professor Hayward responded: "I do not accept that I am spreading 'disinformation'."[2] In a further response, Hayward said that The Times may have published its article because his group was subjecting to critical assessment claims that were being used as a pretext to escalate the war in Syria.[3][4]
