Can Might Make Right? Grotian Rules of Regulation in International Relations

In this seminar, I investigate one of the most puzzling claims of international-relations realism: namely that, given anarchy, ‘might makes right’. I first distinguish it from descriptive and meta-normative propositions with which it is commonly conflated, before explaining why it is worth probing. Most significantly, ‘might makes right’ promises to help elucidate criticism of fact-independent ‘ideal theory’ in the tradition of Rawls. I then explore two arguments in its favour through a stylised reading of Grotius.

Norm Diffusion and Discursive (Re)production: Women's Participation in Peace and Security Governance at the UN

In this seminar, I take a feminist discourse-theoretical approach to the phenomenon that has been termed ‘norm diffusion’ in order to explore, first, how norms can be understood as themselves the product of discursive contestation; second, in what ways norm diffusion can be recast as the reproduction/resistance of dominant or hegemonic discourse in particular institutional settings; and, third, how and in what ways discourse theory can render visible the subject-positions that are created through ‘norm diffusion’ when it is analysed as discursive reproduction.
