The Susan Strange Lecture 2020:
The International Political Economy: sources of nuclear proliferation

Hosted by the Department of International Relations

When: Thursday 13 February 2020, 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Where: Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE

Speaker: Professor Etel Solingen, the Thomas T. and Elizabeth C. Tierney Chair in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of California Irvine and the Susan Strange Visiting Professor, 2019-20 at LSE.

Chair: Professor Karen E Smith, Professor of International Relations, LSE

The 2020 Susan Strange lecture will pay tribute to Professor Strange's contributions by focusing on the international political economy dimensions of nuclear choices, for or against nuclear weapons.

Whereas relative power and security dilemmas have dominated the study of nuclear proliferation for decades, an approach centered on the "cui bono" (who benefits) question reveals how domestic distributional implications related to the global economy have systematic effects on states’ nuclear choices.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket or pre-registration required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
