    Antje Vetterlein ist Professorin für Global Governance an der Universität Münster. Sie studierte Soziologie und VWL an der Universität Leipzig und machte einen MA in Soziologie am Boston College. Ihren PhD erhielt Antje Vetterlein in Sozial- und Politikwissenschaften vom Europäischen Hochschulinstitut in Florenz. Danach arbeitete sie als Lecturer zunächst an den Universitäten Oxford und Essex und dann als Assistent und später Associate Professor am Department of Business and Politics an der Copenhagen Business School. Sie forscht in den Bereichen Internationale Beziehungen und internationale politische Ökonomie. Drei Forschungsschwerpunkte charakterisieren ihre Arbeit: Internationale Organisationen und deren Rolle in der Weltpolitik, Normenforschung in Global Governance, und die politische Ökonomie von Entwicklungshilfe. Ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer Arbeiten beschäftigt sich mit der Analyse des Wandels von Policy Normen und globalen Standards. Es geht um die Frage, wie internationale politische Akteure Ideen aufnehmen und in Policy Normen übersetzen. Zu den wichtigsten Veröffentlichungen zählen "Owning Development: Creating Policy Norms in the IMF and the World Bank" (Cambridge University Press, zusammen mit Susan Park), sowie Artikel in Zeitschriften wie Global Governance, New Political Economy, European Political Science Review, Business & Politics, Journal of International Relations and Development oder Politische Vierteljahresschrift. Antje Vetterlein war Fulbright Fellow (1999/2000), Research Fellow am Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences der Stanford University (2006), am Hansewissenschaftskolleg (2012/13) sowie am Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies der Harvard University (2015/16). Außerdem war sie Gastwissenschaftlerin an der Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok (2007), der Copenhagen Business School (2008), sowie am Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung (2010).
