Dale Murphy

Treasurer
Dale Murphy specializes in international relations, international political economy, business-government relations, “corporate social responsibility” (CSR), democratization and international security. As a member of the International Business Diplomacy core faculty (at Georgetown University) he studies global issues at the juncture of the public and private sectors. His current research focuses on large firms’ use of regulations as a source of competitive advantage, and the impact of international trade and investment on domestic regulations. His first book The Structure of Regulatory Competition: corporations and public policies in a global economy (Oxford University Press, March 2004) draws on transaction cost economics and theories of political economy to differentiate large firms’ preferences and their influences on public policy, and highlights the implications for CSR. His second book project, Public Interests, Private Leaders, and Mass Media (in progress), analyzes various conceptions of the ‘public interest’ and explores how media technologies have changed the ability of individuals to identify, define, and shape these conceptions.
Before joining Georgetown University, Dr. Murphy worked as an assistant vice president at Citicorp, focusing on bank-government relations, Baker-15 debt, negotiation strategy and International Monetary Fund capitalization; he worked on long-term US-Soviet relations and Middle East politics for Secretary of State Shultz in the Policy Planning Staff at the U.S. Department of State (where he drafted articles which appeared under the Secretary’s name); and on foreign policy issues for Democratic Congressional and Presidential candidates. He was a Teaching Fellow in five courses at Harvard University (for Samuel P. Huntington and Joseph Nye) and three at MIT. He has conducted academic research in New York, Geneva, Basle, Brussels, Paris, London, and Tokyo, as well as in emerging markets around the world (including Burma, Thailand, Indonesia, China; Mali, Senegal, Guinée, Ethiopia, Kenya; Morocco, Egypt; Brazil, and Mexico). He has consulted for World Bank and U.S. Agency for International Development missions in Africa and Southeast Asia, and appeared on CNN and other news shows.
