One of the leading centres of the field, the Department of International Relations of the University of Sussex is convening a conference entitled “What’s the Point of IR” in celebrating 50 years of International Relations of the university. With the insights from the world famous speakers the conference is gathering, questions on the distinctiveness, the value, and the purpose of IR are to be attempted, and hopefully some interesting features pointing to the future of the discipline will be drawn.
Bisconia is honoured to send Guan Huang, Victoria Dittmar and Kaiho Uwafune to the frontier in bid to peep into the cutting-edge reflexivity that the field has to offer.
