Global Political Thought

The Global Political Thought research group convenes approximately once a month. The disciplinary home of the research group is the intersection of International Relations and Political Theory broadly conceived, and we discuss and read theoretical as well as empirical work.

If you want to be on the mailing list of the GPT-group, please contact Ted Svensson.
