San Diego

John Ruggie, a UC San Diego professor of international relations, has been chosen director of the University of California’s Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation. The statewide institute, established in 1983 and based at UCSD, conducts research and seminars on conflict resolution and promotes international efforts to avoid war.

Ruggie is a professor at the new UCSD Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies. He recently returned from serving on a joint Soviet-U.S. panel in Moscow on the future of the United Nations, and he was a visiting professor last spring at Beijing University. Before coming to UCSD, Ruggie was a political science professor at Columbia University in New York.

The institute was founded by physicist Herbert York, a longtime UCSD faculty member who helped establish the original campus in the mid-1960s.
