PhDr. Ondřej Ditrych, MPhil. Ph.D.


Dr. Ditrych is an Assistant Professor and Coordinator of D.CENT Karl Deutsch Centre for International Political and Social Research at the Department of International Relations.He holds degrees in international relations from University of Cambridge and Charles University in Prague where he previously graduated in political science. His master thesisNagorno Karabakh: Ethnopolitics and Geopolitics of the Conflictreceived the Bolzano Prize awarded by the Rector of the University (2006). Before joining the faculty, he was a senior researcher at the Institute of International Relations Prague, a Fulbright research fellow at Belfer Center, Harvard University, a visiting researcher at CERI, Sciences Po Paris and SWP Berlin, an associate fellow at European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) and worked as an analyst for NATO SHAPE. He also served as an external advisor to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic (2014-2015) and lectured at the Foreign Ministry’s Diplomatic Academy.


In his current research, inspired by continental philosophy, he explores terrorism, EU external affairs (particularly in the ‘neighbourhood’) and ethnopolitical conflicts which he conceptualises as dispositives, or dynamic assemblages of heterogeneous elements aligned by strategically oriented lines of force. He is also interested in ‘hybrid revolutionary actors’ (e.g. ISIS) and their constitutive effects on global politics; and in the dynamics of change in the established security communities that are characterised by expectations of peaceful conflict resolution.


Dr. Ditrych is the author of more than forty academic articles and book chapters. His articles have been published in leading impacted journals in the field of international relations including Security Dialogue, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Journal of International Relations and Development, International Relations, International Politics or Historical Social Research. His latest book, Tracing the Discourses of Terrorism: Identity, Genealogy and State,was published by Palgrave Macmillan (2014, reviews here and here).


Dr. Ditrych has taken part in a number of collective research projects, as well as expert analyses for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic (recently e.g. a series of explorative scenarios of international security environment), EEAS or the European Parliament. He is currently a principal investigator of PRIMUS 17/HUM/24 Hybrid Revolutionary Actors in Global Politics (2018-) and a senior researcher in an interdisciplinary centre of excellence UNCE Violence, Trauma and Justice (2018-).


He often comments on issues related to his academic interest in media.


Dr. Ditrych is a member of the Academic Senate of the Faculty of Social Sciences (2016-) and Chair of the Senate’s Economic Committee (2017-), as well as a Member of the Board of the Oriental Institute, Czech Academy of Sciences (2017-).
