9780415603782BOOK: The Dao of World Politics: Towards a Post-Westphalian, Worldist International Relations (Routledge, 2014)


Description: LH.M. Ling, a former ICI Fellow and a current member of ICI’s Faculty Advisory Committee theorizes that we may develop a richer, more representative approach towards sustainable and democratic governance by offering a non-Western alternative to hegemonic debates in IR. The book presents the story of world politics by integrating folk tales and popular culture with policy analysis. It does not exclude current models of liberal internationalism but rather brackets them for another day, another purpose. The deconstruction of IR as a singular unifying school of thought through the lens of a non-Westphalian analytic shows a unique perspective on the forces that drive and shape world politics. This book suggests new ways to articulate and act so that global politics is more inclusive and less coercive. Only then, the book claims, could IR realize what the dao has always stood for: a world of compassion and care.

Deadlock to Detente: India's Strategic Doctrine and the Burgeoning Peace with Pakistan @ Dorothy Hirshon Suite
Oct 1 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Deadlock to Detente: India's Strategic Doctrine and the Burgeoning Peace with Pakistan @ Dorothy Hirshon Suite | New York | New York | United States
Awash with militancy, ground zero for climate change, and on the brink of nuclear war, the Indian subcontinent has long been known as “the world’s most dangerous place.” But after decades of deadlock in the subcontinent, India is moving beyond South Asia for its strategic needs—and making peace with Pakistan in the process.
ICI is pleased to present a discussion with Neil Padukone. Mr. Padukone is a Geopolitics Fellow at the Takshashila Institution and a former Public Service Fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, his work has been published in The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, the Journal of International Affairs, Newsweek’s Daily Beast, The National Interest, the World Affairs Journal, the Huffington Post, and the Economic and Political Weekly, among others. Neil is a former foreign affairs columnist at the Christian Science Monitor and South-Central Asia commentator for Russia Today news. His  book Beyond South Asia: India’s Strategic Evolution and the Reintegration of the Subcontinent was published in August 2014.


Joining Mr. Padukone will be Thomas Graham. Dr. Graham is a scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory and  has worked in government (U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, U.S. Department of Energy, Brookhaven National Laboratory) and the non-profit sector (Rockefeller Foundation and The Second Chance Foundation). Dr. Graham has published books and articles on U.S. national security decision making, nuclear non-proliferation and counter-terrorism, and public opinion. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Cosmos Club (Washington, D.C.).

Apr 16 @ 9:00 am – Apr 18 @ 5:00 pm
China and India: New Urban Forms, New Fields of Inquiry Conference @ TBA | Kalisz | Greater Poland Voivodeship | Poland


China and India: New Urban Forms, New Fields of Inquiry will explore new ways of looking at the interplay of the conceptual and the material in studies of urban India and China. A collaborative and exploratory field-building exercise, this conference will pursue alternatives to theories of social science and design that sometimes draw upon universalist and/or linear assumptions about processes such as capitalism, urbanization, and modernity. Instead, our conference participants, many of whom have engaged in ethnographic, interpretive, or other qualitative approaches to urban forms and processes, will pursue new concepts and expose areas of future inquiry based on their work on urban and urbanized spaces of China and India. ICI believes that a conference engaging scholars committed to theorizing from careful, contextualized studies of Chinese and Indian cities has the potential to create new fields of inquiry. Please check back for updates on logistical information about this conference.
