Practice turn workshop attendees

This October, Politics and International Relations staff hosted a workshop on the practice turn in International Relations.

Funded by the ESRC Project “Counter-Piracy Governance. A Praxiographic Analysis” and co-organised by Dr. Christian Bueger and Dr. Alena Drieschova, the workshop took stock of practice theorising in the discipline and investigated the future challenges of this school of thought.

Dr. Drieschova commented on the workshop, “The practice turn is one of the most productive theoretical and empirical endeavours of IR scholarship in the present decade. Practice driven research remains a very young, dynamic, and highly promising theoretical approach to the study of international relations. The workshop succeeded to collate different voices in the practice turn and outline the future agenda.”

The workshop is part of a series of events which will lead to an edited volume on the practice turn in IR. Participants in the workshop and authors include Ted Hopf (Singapore), William Walters (Canada), Vincent Pouliot (Canada), Merje Kuus (Canada), Steven Bernstein (Canada), Anna Leander (Denmark), Rebecca Adler-Nissen (Denmark), Joelle duMouchel (Denmark), Frank Gadinger (Germany), Hilmar Schaefer (Germany), and Morten Andersen (Norway).
