Julian Morris is a senior fellow at Reason Foundation.
Morris is currently the director of innovation policy at the International Center for Law and Economics. He graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a master's degree in economics. Graduate studies at University College London, Cambridge University and the University of Westminster resulted in two further master's degrees and a Graduate Diploma in Law (equivalent to the academic component of a JD).
Morris is the author of dozens of scholarly articles on issues ranging from the morality of free trade to the regulation of the Internet, although his academic research has focused primarily on the relationship between institutions, economic development and environmental protection. He has also edited several books and co-edited the Electronic Journal of Sustainable Development.
Before joining Reason, Morris was executive director of International Policy Network, a London-based think tank which he co-founded. Before that, he ran the environment and technology programme at the Institute of Economic Affairs, also in London. Morris has also been a visiting professor in the Department of International Studies at the University of Buckingham (UK).
