“The South in World Politics”
The role of the South in world politics is a much neglected and even derided topic. While it is clear that some of the ambitious aims of the 1970s for restructuring the global order were not achieved, today we can see through the rise of emerging powers that the international system is indeed being transformed by the South. What consistutes 'the South', what is the link between the activism of the past and the actions of the present and, finally, its impact on international institutions and systems form the core of the lecture.
