Recorded: 27/02/2014

Sir Martin Davidson KCMG, CEO of the British Council, examines the UK’s soft power capacity: its ability to make its national presence felt through its powers of cultural attraction rather than its economic muscle and military might.

DPIR Alumni Event: ‘The Engagement of Theory’

Recorded: 30/11/2013

The theory of politics is sometimes seen as abstract, ivory-tower thinking, detached from reality. But the challenges that face Britain today—constitutional reform, possible secession by Scotland, our relation to the authorities in Brussels and in Strasbourg, and our views about immigration and financial equity—all involve fundamental concepts and values. And it is the mission of political theorists to think as hard as they can about how those values and concepts affect the issues that face our politicians and voters. So we have assembled a team of Oxford theorists to present some of our latest thinking on these topics, to show how theory affects practice and how practice generates the problems that engage and fascinate our theorists. Our theme is “The Engagement of Theory” and our presentations are about the challenges and sometimes the disconcerting implications of working through these issues with a clear sense of political values.

Cyril Foster Lecture: ‘The Political Origins of Global Justice’

Recorded: 28/11/2013

Against the background of the broader history of the idea of human rights, this lecture investigates when and why the contemporary field of "global justice" in philosophy and political theory was invented. Returning to the engagement of American liberals with the decolonization process in the 1970s, in the aftermath of the Vietnam war and even as more powerful tendencies were about to bring the welfarist ideal of the postwar era low, this lecture presents contemporary "cosmopolitanism" as a response to a forgotten revolt of the global south against the prevailing economic order of our age.
