The Politics of Misrecognition
Interdisciplinary Conference
Centre for Ethnicity and Citizenship, University of Bristol
22.–23.1.2010 — Bristol (UK)
For nearly twenty years now, a debate has raged over the best way to respond to people's desire to have their cultural particularities recognized. A number of important political theories of recognition have therefore emerged, and these have invited a range of further critiques. Yet there have been less direct focus on its logical and necessary opposite: misrecognition. How can it motivate political struggle? Is it necessarily unjust? Does it necessarily inflict psychic harm? And more broadly how might misrecognition impact upon such things as citizenship, intercultural dialogue and gender relations? We also welcome papers reflecting on a wide range of types of social, political and personal experience, and investigating cleavages of nationality, religion, race, gender, ethnicity, class identity, disability, and criminality.

Theory versus Policy?
Connecting Scholars and Practitioners
51st Annual Convention
International Studies Association (ISA)
17.–20.2.2010 — New Orleans, LA (USA)
The convention will explore the theory-vs.–practice division across the various issues. To what extent do academic ideas lead to policy changes? To what extent do human rights, human development, and human security norms matter? Does social science have a role in humanitarian action and intervention? What role do academics have in combating global terrorism? In peacekeeping, peace-building, and peace-enforcement? In foreign-policy decision making? In regulating international trade, investment, and finance? How useful are extant theories of revolution and contentious politics in understanding contemporary local and transnational resistances to the neoliberal order? What are the practical and normative implications of research that suggests democracies do not go to war with one another? Are existing theories of democracy relevant to constitutional design and state-building in democratizing and post-conflict societies? Are there theoretical and practical lessons that regional groupings in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East can learn from the regional integration experience of Europe? What are the implications for the study and practice of international politics from the rises in economic power and international influence of China and India? Can alternative theories of international affairs be developed out of non-Western trends and practices?
