Justin completed his undergraduate degree in English Literature (Cantab) in 1983, before taking a Masters and a PhD in Sociology. In 1991 he became a lecturer in International Relations at LSE, before moving to Sussex in 1998.
Professor of International Relations
Head of Department (International Relations)
Justin is also Co-Convenor of the BISA Working Group on Historical Sociology (historical-sociology.org)and International Relations, and of the Sussex Working Group on Uneven and Combined Development (unevenandcombined.com).
Justin Rosenberg's research focusses on the challenge of providing a social theory of International Relations. Starting with a historical materialist critique of both political realism and globalisation theory, this focus has led to a sustained attempt to reconstruct the theory of 'uneven and combined development' associated with Leon Trotsky. The purpose is to expand Trotsky's idea from an analysis of capitalist development in particular into a more general premise about world history and the role of inter-societal interactions within it.
Areas of research supervision:
International Theory; World History; Uneven and Combined Development; General Social Theories of Modernity, especially Marx and Weber; the Historical Development of the International System.
