About this Event
How can local experiences and the social transformation generated by modernity help to enrich our understanding of the international? What might a version of the much-discussed “non-Western International Relations (IR)” look like? What continuities and discontinuities from the Philippine experience in particular can be useful for understanding other post-colonial polities? The Philippines makes a fascinating case study of a medium-sized, developing, post-colonial, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural state in Southeast Asia.
