MasterClass `Decolonising International Relations`

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 03:00:00 +0000

“What is ‘colonial’ about International Relations, and what does it mean to ‘decolonise’ our research and teaching in this field? There are now multiple dimensions to the ‘postcolonial critique’ of IR, which has become increasingly prominent as an orientation to research. This critique encompasses the basic assumptions of the field, its historical sensibilities, the way it defines its objects and research questions, the methods that it uses, the ethics of its data collection and the wider political orientations of the research it produces. It also contemplates the university as a colonial institution and the classroom as a space of prospective transformation. This masterclass focuses on the power of postcolonial thought in redefining the ways in which we ‘do’ International Relations. It will introduce different analytical concepts and strategies of critique from this tradition, and discuss how these can be applied in the study of different phenomena, such as war and intervention. It will examine some of the difficult questions this poses for ‘data collection’ as traditionally understood, and discuss ways of handling these. It will also open up questions of how different forms of political engagement might animate new research questions from a postcolonial perspective.” Meera Sabaratnam (PhD, LSE) is Lecturer in International Relations in the Department of Politics and International Studies at SOAS University of London. Her research interests are in the colonial and post-colonial dimensions of world politics, within IR theory, history and contemporary policy and practice. Mark Laffey (PhD, University of Minnesota) is Senior Lecturer in International Relations and Head of Department in the Department of Politics and International Studies at SOAS University of London. His research interests are in International Security, International Relations Theory and Postcolonial Theory and Politics. It is essential to register by emailing polsis.gradcentre@uq.edu.au Open to all Graduate Students

Tobacco and the WTO

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 07:30:00 +0000

The Law, Science and Technology Program and the Australian Legal Philosophy Students’ Association (ALPSA) are jointly hosting a seminar by Professor Mark Davison (Monash University Faculty of Law). Australia recently won a dispute at the World Trade Organization (WTO) about the Tobacco Plain Packaging Act 2011 (Cth). The case arose under the WTO treaty on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS). The outcome has significant implications for trade jurisprudence and the rights of states to impose public health measures that interfere with their international obligations and the privileges of trademark owners. From 2011, Professor Davison was Expert Advisory Group on Plain Packaging of Tobacco Products to the Australian Government. He is a member of the Intellectual Property Committee of the Law Council of Australia.
