Bryan Druzin is Associate Professor of law at the Chinese University of Hong Kong where he teaches jurisprudence and ethics. He has held teaching positions at King’s College London and Brunel University London. He holds a B.A., LL.B., and LL.M. from the University of British Columbia and a PhD in law from King’s College London. He is former Director of the Faculty’s LLM Programmes and is a Non-resident Senior Fellow at the Centre for International Law, Conflict and Crisis (CILG) at the University of Copenhagen.
Dr. Druzin is a specialist in legal theory. He has published widely with leading U.S. law schools (Harvard, Cornell, Columbia, Georgetown, UPenn, etc.), noted peer-reviewed journals, and has contributed to several edited volumes published by Oxford University Press and Cambridge University Press. His work focuses on the decentralized emergence of law, social order, and governance. He has written on a range of topics in this area, from the self-ordering potential of international law to the evolution of social norms, rights, and institutions. His scholarship draws from rational choice theory, path dependence, and the study of networks.
Dr. Druzin is the 2015 recipient of the CU Research Excellence Award, which provided extensive financial support for his research. His current research asks whether it is possible to strengthen global governance by harnessing the mechanics of self-organization.
