Jason Ralph will be talking about the US and how a 'bounded' conception of democracy reinforces exceptionalist policies in the fight against terrorism. Paul Dixon is an expert on the politics of Northern Ireland and the peace process which aimed to put an end to violent confrontation between Protestants and Catholics.
