'How to Study Global IR?' Workshop

There is now a far more sophisticated understanding of the contested character of global order and of ‘non-western’ perspectives. Much work has been done to pluralize and relativize the study of IR, and to question a mainstream that is often unaware of the deeply western-centric character of its assumed historical narratives, its allegedly universal theoretical categories, and its political preoccupations. But where does this agenda go next?

Convened by Professor Andrew Hurrell, this workshop brings together leading specialists to debate the state of the art on How to Study Global IR.
