This conference will cover a range economic, political, philosophical and IR areas, including:

  • The influence of structural factors (such as ideological constraints, legacy of Thatcherite Conservatism, etc.) on the policy-making of John Major’s  Conservative Government;
  • The constructivist account of the uneven development of the EU-Russia Energy Dialogue and the problems with energy securitisation;
  • A critique of the bounded politics of the IR discipline to the exclusion of alternative theory, such as Islamic alternatives;
