Erin Hurley Adjunct Professorial Lecturer SIS Faculty

I earned my doctorate in International Relations from the University of Sydney and my Masters of Public Administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Foreign Affairs at Syracuse University.

I am a political scientist focused on writing and teaching about the interplay between foreign policy and domestic politics. I currently teach at the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown and at the School of International Service at American University. My expertise includes war and public opinion, elections and foreign policy, and research design. From 2019-2022 I was engaged as a regular columnist on elections and foreign policy for the The Interpreter, a digital magazine produced by the Lowy Institute, a Sydney-based think tank.
