An expert in geo-politics and global economics, Professor Abdelal lectures on, among other things, the roots on the European Union (and where it might be going) and on the status of the Greek crisis.
His book "National Purpose in the World Economy: Post-Soviet States in Comparative Perspective" won the Shulman Prize for Outstanding Book on International Relations.
Professor Abdelal also won the HBS Student Association's Faculty Award for outstanding teaching.
