Kom med til en spændende debat om international politik, når Professor John J. Mearsheimer gæster Københavns Universitet. Professor Ole Wæver er moderator.

Professor John J. Mearsheimer er R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor at University of Chicago. Han er en af de mest indflydelsesrige nulevende teoretikere inden for faget interna­tio­nal politik, og han er hovedarving til den ”realistiske” (eller “realpolitiske”) tradition. I præsentationen "American International Relations Theory: Its Influence at Home and Abroad" vil Mearsheimer diskutere forholdet mellem teori og praksis inden for international politik. Hvorfor følger beslutningstagerne de teorier, de gør? Og hvad kan forskere og praktikere gøre for at skabe et forhold, hvor bedre teorier underbygger bedre politik?

Arrangementet foregår på engelsk, og ingen tilmelding er nødvendig.

Join us for an interesting talk about the influence of American International Relations Theory at home and abroad when Professor John J. Mearsheimer visits the University of Copenhagen. The debate is moderated by Professor Ole Wæver.

Professor John J. Mearsheimer is R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago. The talk "American International Relations Theory: Its Influence at Home and Abroad" will explain why international relations theory is essential for understanding the world around us and why policymakers, whether they admit it or not, use theories to formulate and execute policies. The talk will also examine which international relations theories hold the most sway in policymaking circles in the United States and elsewhere, and why they do so. Finally, the talk will assess the relationship between academia, think tanks, and the policy world.

The event is in English, and everyone is welcome. There is no need to register, but we recommend that you arrive well in advance.
