Henry Radice

HenryHenry Radice is an Associate at LSE IDEAS and Research Manager of the Justice and Security Research Programme, an international research consortium in which LSE is the lead institution. He holds a PhD in International Relations, an MSc in the Theory and History of International Relations, and a BSc in Economics and Economic History, all from the LSE. He has taught at both graduate and undergraduate level in the Departments of International Relations, International Development, and LSE100. His work, grounded in liberal international political theory, focuses on the politics of crisis across three main contexts.

First, through a monograph project, Humanity in Crisis: The Politics and Ethics of Humanitarianism, he looks at how conceptions of common humanity are negotiated in response to humanitarian crises through a ‘politics of humanity’. Second, he engages with a much more diffuse and complex crisis: the humanitarian challenge of climate change, which threatens to amplify and stretch to breaking point notions of humanitarian solidarity. Third, he engages with the politics of solidarity and related questions of identity within the context of a much more robustly institutionalised political sphere, as part of the Euro Crisis in the Press |project.
