Ernst Bernard Haas was born in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1924. Haas and his family immigrated to the United States in 1938 where he attended the University of Chicago prior to working in the US Army Military Intelligence Service from 1943-1946. He received his PhD in public law and government in 1952 from Columbia University, where he had also received his BS and MA. Haas began his academic career in 1951 at UC Berkeley, where he remained until his death in 2003. He was director of the UC Berkeley Institute for International Studies from 1969-1973 and Robson Professor of Government. A leading authority on international relations theory, Haas was concerned with the concepts and process of international integration and is the founder of neofunctionalism as an approach to the study of integration. Haas was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and he served as a consultant to many bodies in academia, publishing, government and international organizations, including the US Department of State, the United Nations and the Commission on Global Governance.
