International Relations Conference at National Law School, Bangalore

Faculty and students of National Law School, Bengaluru propose to organise a Conference on the problems in and the possibility of strengthening the voice of the Global South in International Relations.

The questions/ themes around which the organisers wish to discuss the topic tentatively are as follows.

  • Does the Global South emulate Global North in its foreign policy choices? Does it have to?
  • Are models of foreign policy analysis North-centric?
  • Even if the South replicates instruments (such as trade, diplomacy etc.) of foreign policy established by the North, does it pursue its goals through these instruments differently?
  • Making of a shared foreign policy of Global South. Is it possible? What are the possible challenges to the same?
  • Analysing the reasons for lack of theorization on issues of Global South.
  • Can there be a Global South approach to International Relations?
  • Role of the academia in the articulating a theory of the Global South.
  • Reconstructing the responses of the South in a North dominated World.
