Claire Vergerio

Fung Global Fellow

Fung Global Fellows Program - Fall 2019

Louis A. Simpson International Building, Office 152A

Vergerio received her D.Phil from the University of Oxford and is an assistant professor of international relations at the Institute of Political Science, Leiden University, the Netherlands. As a scholar of international relations, Claire works at the intersection of international political thought, history and international law. She is particularly interested in the regulation of warfare and its relationship to different visions of international order, as well as in the construction of the historical narratives that underpin the disciplines of international law and international relations. At Princeton, Claire will be finalizing her monograph on the role played by the revival of the work of Alberico Gentili in the restriction of the legal right to wage war exclusively to sovereign states.
