Militarization, Surveillance and Violence in Contemporary World Politics | Second Week roundtable

We are pleased to invite you to the our second public event of the fourth edition of the IPS Winter School.

Militarization, Surveillance and Violence in Contemporary World Politics

Militarization plays a central role in the normalization of violence in multiple social and political sites in international relations today. As the diffusion of surveillance disperses insecurities and intensifies exceptions and emergencies, the military ethos occupies an increasingly central place in everyday life and political imaginations. The roundtable discusses the implication of theses processes in the changing practices of counterinsurgency, government of mobility; urban policing; humanitarian operations and other instances of contemporary world politics.

Last week of classes in the second edition of the Winter School

By the end of the week, the second edition of the International Political Sociology (IPS) Winter School will come to its end. These days were marked by marvelous discussions and lectures that certainly not only made us think critically about the International Relations area of study and reach satisfactory conclusions but also allowed us to get along with each other and create a dynamic and joyful academic environment. Below, you will find a few moments from our productive meetings.

It has been a pleasure to have you all here with us and we hope to see you next year!
