About the Guest Lecture Series

This lecture series is part of the SCRIPTS project "Race and Multilaterialism - The Anatomy of a Complex Relationship" based at the JFKI. Multilateralism is the mode of institutionalized cooperation that best characterizes the modern international order. Multilateralism is often associated with liberal normative foundations, including a commitment to equality. However, there has been relatively little research on how multilateralism as an institutional form is implicated in creating, recreating, or overcoming racial inequalities and hierarchies within the so-called liberal international order. This lecture series brings together a group of leading scholars to address the sources of and contestations over racialized hierarchies in international order from specific thematic perspectives, including international law, international organizations, political economy, security studies, and US foreign policy.

The lecture series is open to the public — all are welcome to join us wednesdays in Room R340!
