When considering the ideas that have shaped International Relations (IR) thinking, why do we make so much of Thucydides, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, and Kant, but not Kautilya, Andrés Bello, Rabindranath Tagore, José Ortega y Gasset, Sun Yat Sen and many others from the non-Anglo-Saxon World? The need for a more ‘global’ agenda in IR has been the subject of ongoing debate in the field. In this light, the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford, the CIS Oxford and St Cross College, Oxford at the University of Oxford jointly present the Global Thinkers of the International Discussion Series. In this inaugural session, Head of DPIR, Professor Louise Fawcett, will discuss the work of the leading Latin American intellectual, Andrés Bello, known for his work on International Law, the Spanish language and the Civil Code for the Republic of Chile.

Louise's thoughts on Bello are best revealed in her article, "Between West and non-West: Latin American Contributions to International Thought" - available for download through most University Libraries. We look forward to welcoming you to this session. Make sure to RSVP via facebook or email [email protected], as we have limited seats. See you there.
Professor Louise Fawcett, Head of Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR) at the University of Oxford, will discuss Andrés Bello's writings on International Relations on Wednesday 25 November....
