Biographical details

Linda Weiss is a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, Professor Emeritus in Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney, and Honorary Professor of Political Science at Aarhus University. She has lectured widely in North America, Europe, and East Asia and has held visiting research appointments at UCLA, Cornell, the LSE, the European University Institute, University of Rome (La Sapienza), Stockholm School of Economics, Academia Sinica, Seoul National University, the Kyungnam Institute for Far Eastern Studies (Seoul), and the Academia Sinica. She currently serves on the editorial boards of several international journals.

Her specialism is the comparative and international politics of economic development, with a focus on state capacity and public-private sector relations. Several of her publications on the topics of globalisation and state power, developmental states, and trade politics have been translated into Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Korean, Romanian, Turkish and Chinese. Her forthcoming book, 'Hybrid State, Hybrid Capitalism', shifts the focus of earlier work from Europe and East Asia to the United States. This project on the political economy of national security focuses on the links between security, technology, and political culture. The study has been six years in the making and is her largest to date.
