LISD Roundtable on Self-Determination

Date & Time Feb 22 2018 12:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Audience Restricted to Princeton University

The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination will convene a round table discussion on self-determination on Thursday, February 22, 2018, beginning at 12:00 p.m. in 019 Bendheim Hall. Princeton University faculty and students are invited to join the discussion. To attend, RSVP to Angella Sandford (link sends e-mail).

Participants will include practitioners and academics from a variety of disciplines, ranging from philosophy, politics, and international relations to anthropology and cultural studies. The dialogue will aim to update notions of self-determination by examining its form in the modern age, how different movements might be influenced by one another, and the impact of both self-determination movements and responses to them by global actors in the international sphere. Both practical and theoretical aspects of these themes will be addressed, with a particular eye to eliciting reflections on diverse self-determination suits ongoing throughout wider Europe and the Middle East.
