Cambridge (MA), September 8th, 2014

Welcome to this site if it’s your first visit and welcome back if you’re returning. You’ll find out what I’m teaching, what I’m writing and where I’ll be appearing this fall.

I'm teaching IGA 365 Human Rights and Foreign Policy this semester to a full house of students from the Kennedy School, Harvard College, Harvard GSAS, Tufts and MIT. The students come from more than 30 countries and as a result, I learn as much from them as they do from me.

Zsuzsanna and I are sophomore advisors in Mather House, and we are lucky to live on the top of Mather Tower, with a stunning view of Cambridge and Boston.

I’m writing for The New Republic, The New York Review of Books and The Atlantic, and I’ll post these articles as they appear.

As you can see in the Events panel, I’m appearing at a number of events this fall and I hope to see some of you at these occasions.

I hope you find the site useful and that you will get in touch. I will reply as soon as I can.

Michael Ignatieff
