Governance at the ‘Edge’ of the State: Political Subjectivity and Citizenship

Aktivitet: Typer för deltagande i eller organisering av evenemangArrangemang av och deltagande i konferens/workshop/kurs/seminarium


State rule is presently challenged in many parts of the world such that governance is achieved by overlapping authorities. The course focuses on the implications of these achievements for conflict, citizenship and social inequality. ‘Political subjectivity’ captures how power operates to produce desires for recognition, belonging, and rights, which all shape inclusion and exclusion. At the edges of the state, these desires erupt in conflict over public authority, citizenship and resources. The course aim is to equip PhD students with theoretical and methodological tools to do research in unstable political contexts.
