Ilan Zvi Baron completed his doctorate at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, in 2007 where he was an E.H. Carr Scholar and recipient of an Overseas Research Scheme grant. He completed an MSc in International Relations at the London School of Economics and a BA (Hons) in Political Science at the University of Victoria, Canada. He has been deputy editor of Millennium, and has worked with various international NGOs in Geneva and Zurich. Dr Baron has held visiting posts at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the University of British Columbia, and the London School of Economics. He was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Institut Barcelona D'Estudis Internacionals. 

Dr. Baron's research explores different ways that we experience international politics in our everyday lives. To date, he has written on post-truth politics, the Jewish Diaspora's relationship with Israel, and the international cultural politics of Israeli cuisine. In addition, he has written on violence, the ethics of war, identity and security, and International Relations theory.

He is currently working on a long-term research project about political responsibility and dystopian novels. This project is a continuation of his work on post-truth politics.
