Dudău Radu

Associate Professor, Bucharest University, Philosophy Department

I teach Political Philosophy, International Relations Theory, and Ethics in International Relations. My current research lies at the borderline between Political Philosophy and International Affairs.

I graduated in Physics and Philosophy from the University of Iasi, and then took my doctorate (Dr. Phil.) in philosophy of science from the University of Konstanz (Germany) in 2002, with a dissertation on the Realism/Antirealism Debate in the Philosophy of Science. I was a lecturer at the University of Iasi from 2003 to 2006, and taught Philosophy of Language and Philosophy of Social Science. From 2006, I have been at the Bucharest University, in the department of Political and Moral Philosophy of the Philosophy Faculty.

From February to June 2011 I was at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, with a Fulbright research grant in International Relations.
