Founded in 1962, St Catherine's College prides itself as “Oxford's youngest mixed (undergraduate and graduate) college and also one of its largest and most diverse communities.” ( As a Christensen Fellow, Professor Acharya will work on the topic of “Emerging Powers and Global Governance”, which is intended to lead to a monograph and several journal articles and book chapters.
