The panel will address four key questions related to International Relations as a mainstream academic discipline and racialized politics. Why might Black Lives Matter be a subject for scholars of IR or world politics? Has the discipline acknowledged its original sin in terms of erasing non-Western history in helping to shape international society? Has IR taken seriously the colonial histories that were constitutive of the formation of modern states? How can IR be democratized without wrestling with the history of racialized international political analysis and racism in general?
