Bio/Research

Brian L. Job (PhD, Indiana University) is Professor of Political Science and a resident Faculty Associate of the Liu Institute. He joined the UBC faculty in 1989, having previously been on the faculty of the University of Minnesota. From 1992 – 2010, he served as Director of the Centre of International Relations and coincidentally directed UBC’s Security and Defence Forum Program. His current teaching and research interests concern international security—more specifically, the evolving security order of the Asia Pacific, intrastate conflict, human security, and Canadian foreign and security policies. At present, he is engaged in research and writing (in company with graduate students) on arms competition in Asia, on the normative and practical dilemmas associated with the Responsibility to Protect and the protection of civilians in conflict (especially as these concern Asian states), and on the paths to regional security cooperation. Job is involved in regional Asia Pacific, expert networks, particularly with the Council of Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific (CSCAP), and served as Editor of the annual CSCAP Regional Security Outlook from 2007-2012. Job is a Senior Fellow of the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada and edits the Foundation’s Canada Asia Agenda Internet bulletin. He has been a visiting professor at Aoyama Gakuin University, Tokyo; Nanyang Technical University, Singapore; and the Australian National University.
