About

Ian Taylor is Professor in International Relations and African Political Economy at St Andrews and also Chair Professor in the School of International Studies, Renmin University of China - the highest rank a non-Chinese academic can hold at a Chinese university.

 

He is also Professor Extraordinary in Political Science at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa; an Honorary Professor at the Institute of African Studies, China; a Visiting Scholar at Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Uganda; and a Professor in the Brazilian Centre of African Studies, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil.

 

He has held visiting professorships at the School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, at the Institute for Peace and Security Studies, University of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and was the Lee Hysan Visiting Professor, Centre for China Studies, Chinese University of Hong Kong.

 

Focusing largely on sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) he has authored 10 academic books, edited another 12 and has published over 70 peer-reviewed scholarly articles, over 80 chapters in books and numerous working papers, reports, op-eds, review articles, encyclopedia entries, book reviews etc. He is, by far, the most published and most cited academic in the entire School of IR at St Andrews, with an h-index of 34.

 

He has been invited to present his research in 51 different countries on 6 continents and has been described as "one of the most authoritative academics on SSA IR" (Cambridge Review of International Affairs, vol. 25, no 1, 2012, p. 171).

 

He holds a DPhil from the University of Stellenbosch and an MPhil from the University of Hong Kong. He also holds a teaching certificate from the International Language Institute, Cairo, Egypt (where he taught Ethiopian, Somali and Sudanese refugees), and a Certificate in Theology from the Highland Theological College, University of the Highlands and Islands, Scotland.

 

Prior to joining St Andrews in 2004 he taught African politics and history and various IR and Development subjects for four years at the University of Botswana.

 

Before entering academia, he worked for the UNHCR, based in Hong Kong, on the Vietnamese "Boat People" issue.

 

Other than at St Andrews and Botswana, Taylor has also taught courses at the University of Addis Ababa; Ben-Gurion University (Israel); Dalhousie University (Canada); the University of Edinburgh; the University of Hong Kong; Mbarara University of Science and Technology (Uganda); Renmin University of China; the University of Stellenbosch, and Zhejiang Normal University (China).

 

Outside of St Andrews, he is a Commissioner of the 14-persons Commonwealth Scholarship Commission. 

 

He has conducted research in and/or visited 40 African countries, plus Réunion (a little outpost of la gloire française). Taylor's academic work has been translated into Afrikaans, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Research

He is interested in sub-Saharan Africa's political economy and its international relations, the history of Afro-Asian diplomacy, the notion of "rising powers", and the implications for global governance and development (and for Africa specifically).

 

He has studied China's relations with Africa, producing a large body of work on this topic, conducted since 1994 and based on extensive fieldwork across Africa and in China, as well as Chinese historical sources.

 

He also has an abiding interest in critical theory, particularly neo-Gramscian theory, and in the political thought of the great African intellectuals such as Cabral, Biko, Nkrumah, Nyerere, Fanon etc.

 

His most recent books are on Africa's international relations (2010), one on the history of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, which was published in 2011 and a book analysing the implications of the BRICS' involvement in SSA in the context of the whole "Africa Rising" discourse, entitled Africa Rising? BRICS - Diversifying Dependency, published in late 2014.

 

His latest book Global Governance and Transnationalising Capitalist Hegemony: The Myth of the 'Emerging Powers'  is to be published in December 2016. The book examines how the “emerging powers” were incorporated into ongoing structures of global governance in the post-2008 period of economic crisis. Using the work of Antonio Gramsci and Nicos Poulantzas, the argument is made that the interior bourgeoisie of the so-called rising powers have, despite their rhetoric, actively sought greater integration into the extant world order, thereby strengthening neo-liberal capitalist hegemony. 

 

He has also just finished co-editing a book, with colleagues from Russia and South Africa, on the role of emerging powers in Africa. This is to be published by Palgrave in December 2016

 

He has also published a substantial body of work on post-apartheid South Africa's political economy, as well as its diplomacy.  His studies in this field were described as "represent[ing] probably the most articulate and theoretically self-conscious attempt to come to grips with the contradictions in South Africa's foreign policy" (European Journal of Development Research, vol. 24, no. 2, 2012, p. 286.

 

Furthermore, he has been one of the leading exponents of the application and adaptation of the New Regionalism Theory to the critical study of trans-border processes in Africa, with numerous publications in this field.

  

He has conducted fieldwork/research in Botswana, Cameroon, Cape Verde, China, D.R. Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, The Gambia, Ghana, India, Lesotho, Liberia, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somaliland, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, United States of America, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
