The Susan Strange Lecture 2022
Rituals and the Making of International Society

Speaker: Thierry Balzacq, the Susan Strange Visiting Professor 2022/23 at LSE, Professor at the Center for International Studies, SciencesPo.

Chair: Jeffrey M. Chwieroth, Professor of International Relations, LSE.

Diplomatic apologies, joint military exercises, gift giving, and global summits, are assumed to be some of the most iconic rituals of world politics. However, many actions that are achieved by means of rituals can be enacted otherwise. What criteria, then, do scholars employ to say that an action or an event is a ritual, and what difference (if any) does it make to its character as well as to its efficacy?

This public event is free and open to all. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.

Book launch: A Green and Global Europe

Co-hosted by the European Foreign Policy Unit and the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment

Thursday 8 December 2022 6pm to 7.30pm
MAR 2.04, Marshall Building

Speakers:

Dr Nathalie Tocci is Director of the Istituto Affari Internazionali, Honorary Professor at the University of Tübingen, and alumnus of LSE.

Professor Robert Falkner is Professor of International Relations at LSE and Academic Director of the TRIUM Global Executive MBA.

Chair:

Dr Federica Bicchi is Associate Professor in the Department of International Relations, LSE and Director of the European Foreign Policy Unit.

In A Green and Global Europe Nathalie Tocci explains how the unprecedented nature of the current energy transition represents both a unique opportunity and a huge challenge to Europe’s future prosperity. The EU, she argues, must not act in isolation or ignore the adverse effects of the transition on member states and neighbours. It must also address the global cleavages that may arise with China, the transatlantic relationship and the Global South as a result of the EU’s green agenda. 

This public event is free and open to all. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.

Does the Muslim World Exist? A Foray into Global History and Global International Relations

Speakers:

Professor Cemil Aydin, Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Professor Menderes Çınar, Professor of Political Science in the Department of Political Science and International Relations, Başkent University, Ankara.

Professor Ayşe Zarakol, Professor of International Relations at the University of Cambridge, also Politics Fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. 

Chair:

Dr Katerina Dalacoura, Associate Professor in the Department of International Relations, LSE. 

Muslim-majority societies – similarly to all others - have had a contested relationship with history and continue to grapple with the ideas of ‘Islam’, ‘the Muslim world’ and ‘Islamic civilisation’. It has been argued that the latter are products of global intellectual trends and power relations in the nineteenth century and that their continuing potency derive from their being used by political actors (such as the AKP in Turkey) as ideological tools. The panel will investigate these claims by exploring the historical conditions and inter-connected global power structures which brought the idea of Islam into being.

This public event is free and open to all. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
