Written on February 20, 2017 by Administrador de IE Blogs in IE University, International Relations

Manuel Muñiz, a renowned expert in innovation, geopolitics and regional and global governance, has been appointed Dean of IE School of International Relations. In this new phase, Muñiz will focus on developing initiatives aimed at consolidating IE School of International Relations as a benchmark in the field of education programs for global leadership. Muñiz will also create the IE Center for Change Governance, dedicated to the study of challenges resulting from the acceleration of technological and social change in public and private sectors, and to the development of solutions and tools required to provide optimum governance.

Muñiz is currently Director of the Harvard University’s Program on Transatlantic Relations. He will take over from Arantza de Areilza, who has served as Dean of IE School of International Relations since its foundation in 2008. “Manuel Muñiz is a model academic entrepreneur with a brilliant international trajectory,” says Santiago Íñiguez de Onzoño, President of IE University. “His strategic plan will transform IE School of International Relations into a source of future architects of the global society.”

Manuel Muñiz has undertaken research on cooperation and integration in Europe and the North Atlantic aimed at gaining an understanding of how states tackle interdependence and complexity.

Muñiz is a Professor of global Transformation and Director of the Program on Global Leadership at the Rafael del Pino Foundation. He is also a local affiliate of the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies at Harvard University, and a member of the Alumni Board of Directors of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

Dr. Muniz holds a JD (Law) from the Complutense University in Madrid, an MSc in Finance from the IEB, a Master in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government, and a DPhil (PhD) in International Relations from the University of Oxford. He is also a David Rockefeller Fellow of the Trilateral Commission and a holder of the Atlantic Council’s Millennium Fellowship. In 2016 Esglobal included him among the top 25 intellectuals who are redefining Ibero-American thought.
