Otto Holman studied Political Science and International Relations at the University of Amsterdam, where he also obtained his PhD (in 1993). He is reader (UHD1) in International Relations and European Integration Studies in the Department of Political Science and member of the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR), both at the University of Amsterdam. Previous appointments include: visiting lecturer at the University of Antwerpen (1988); Staff member of the Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy (1994-95); visiting professor at the University of Lausanne (Fall 2009, 2010, 2011).

Otto Holman is the director of the MSc Programme European Union in a Global Order (see the links to the programme and the programme's flyer below) at the Graduate School of Social Sciences (GSSS). TheGSSS is the successor of the International School for Humanities and Social Sciences (ISHSS). Holman was founder and director (1998-2008) of the MSc Programme in International Relations at the ISHSS.

Otto Holman was co-founder and co-editor of the RIPE series in Global Political Economy (Routledge, together with Marianne Marchand and Henk Overbeek, until 2004; for the current series and editors, see the link below); he is member of the International Editorial Board of this book series (since 2005). He was member of the editorial board of Acta Politica (2006-11) and co-founder and (until 2008) vice-chair of the Association for a Democratic Europe (see link to the website of the VDE).

Teaching

Teaching activities in 2010-11 include the International Relations core module at undergraduate level (1st year); European External Relations: a Theoretical Perspective (core module master programme European Union in a Global Order); and Research Project EU Enlargement and Neighbourhood. Holman was 2003 teacher of the year ( onderwijslieverdje ) at the Department of Political Science.

Since 1983, teaching areas include:

  • International Relations (theory and practice)
  • International Political Economy (theory and practice)
  • European Integration Studies (theory and practice)
  • Public International Law (focus on security issues)
  • Comparative Politics
  • European monetary policy
  • European social and regional policy
  • European external relations
  • Convergence and divergence in Europe
  • Democratic transformation in Southern Europe
  • Double transformation in Central and Eastern Europe

Research interests

Otto Holman's research interests include the role of transnational social forces in emerging patterns of European governance, peripheral capitalism and EU enlargement, and the regional impact of core-periphery relations in Europe. He is currently preparing a book on transformation processes in Central Europe and the European Union, and new patterns of core-periphery relations in an enlarged Union. A central theme of this book is the intersection of EU's external performance, on the one hand, and its internal, crisis driven governance structures, on the other. Future research will particularly look at the development of 'transnational governance without supranational government' in the European Union, the role of organised business in unfolding public-private partnerships and the patterns of democratic accountability related to it. In addition, research will be conducted on the role of non-state actors in the further development of EU's foreign relations. Of particular interest is the role of Europe's so-called strategic industrial sectors, notably energy and defense, in strengthening EU's security strategy and in promoting enhanced cooperation in the area of the European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP). It will be argued that this can be seen as a belated (and anticipatory) form of political spillover. Finally, his research is focused on the transformative power of the European Union vis-à-vis its immediate periphery, inter alia through the Copenhagen enlargement strategy and the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP). The international or external actorness of the European Union aims at strengthening democratic structures and capitalist development also in further away (i.e. non-European) regions and countries. Research will be conducted on the security component of this development policy (e.g. the securitisation of energy) and on the intersection of democracy promotion and economic development strategies with a special emphasis on the Meditterranean southern shore periphery of the European Union.

Otto Holman has published articles and book chapters in seven different languages (Dutch, English, Polish, Spanish, Portuguese, French and German) and in nine different countries (though the bulk of his writing is in English; the Dutch university system discourages publications in languages other than English).
