RIP John Ruggie. He made such meaningful and rich contributions to IR, IPE, and GG theory. His work on embedded liberalism has informed my teaching and scholarship since grad school.

Mourning the loss of John Ruggie. His 1982 article shaped my understanding of the postwar economic order more than anything else. He was my dean at Columbia and colleague at Harvard. Great human being, terrific scholar, successful practitioner.

RIP John Ruggie. His work on business and human rights powerfully exemplifies how theoretical insights can have great practical significance. He was also a very nice man.

RIP John Ruggie. The ‘Protect, Respect, Remedy’ framework shifted the discussion on #bizhumanrights in such a positive way. The UNGPs were a game-changer. The @globalcompact remains an important pillar in biz-human rights architecture. Global trade unions are forever grateful.
NOT AN OBITUARY .
