Theory Seminar: Hiearchies in World Politics
NUPI has the pleasure of inviting you to a theory seminar with Ayse Zarakol from University of Cambridge.
In recent decades, globalizing processes have gathered intense attention for complicating the nature of political boundaries, authority and state sovereignty. Perhaps it is partly due to such developments that scholarship in International Relations (IR) now appeals far less frequently and explicitly to anarchy. In light of the analytic insufficiencies of anarchy-centred theories in the contemporary global context, a growing range of scholars have been seeking to make sense of world politics through an analytical focus on hierarchies instead. The talk will discuss different approaches to hierarchy and their implications for our understanding of world politics.
