Professor Donald John 'Don' Markwell (born 19 April 1959) is an Australian social scientist and college president.[1] In February 2009 the Rhodes Trust announced that Professor Markwell would succeed Sir Colin Lucas as Warden of Rhodes House.

Markwell's works include contributions to international relations, political science, the history of economic thought, public law, and education.

His John Maynard Keynes and International Relations: Economic Paths to War and Peace[2] has been widely cited in the Keynesian revival of 2008 for its emphasis on international economic cooperation (including the international coordination of economic policies and the development of international economic institutions such as the International Monetary Fund and World Bank) and on economic causes of war and economic means to promote peace.[3] This is one of a number of Markwell's publications on John Maynard Keynes,[4] and on idealism (international relations) (especially interwar idealists, such as Sir Alfred Zimmern,[5] Florence Stawell, and Keynes). Markwell's contributions to international relations are in the tradition of Hedley Bull, adding an emphasis on economic determinants of order in the international society of states.

Markwell's writings in political science and public law have been especially concerned with constitutional issues, including federalism, constitutional conventions in the Westminster system, and the monarchy and republicanism in Commonwealth countries, including the reserve powers.[6] He uncovered the extensive history of consultations of judges of the High Court of Australia (such as Sir Samuel Griffith and Sir Edmund Barton) by Governor-Generals of Australia.[7] He worked closely with the former Governor-General of Australia, Sir Zelman Cowen, in the writing of A public life: the memoirs of Zelman Cowen.[8]

Rhodes Scholar for Queensland for 1981, Markwell was educated at the University of Queensland, University of Oxford, and Princeton University. He was Fellow and Tutor in Politics at Merton College, University of Oxford, from 1986 to 1997; Warden (president) of Trinity College (University of Melbourne) from 1997 to 2007; and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) (provost?) of the University of Western Australia from 2007.

Markwell's 'A large and liberal education': higher education for the 21st century[9][6] reflects his advocacy of broad undergraduate education (liberal education), improving teaching and learning in universities,[10] equity and access, the value of collegiate education [7] and student engagement, and the importance of educational philanthropy.

In 2007-2009, Markwell led a curriculum review at the University of Western Australia which has proposed significant curriculum reform.[8]
