Invitation, Lecture: Three Scenes of Sovereignty and Power. The ascent of China, regionalism, and the global nonproliferation regime

News from Jun 30, 2011

The Kolleg-Forschergruppe „The Transformative Power of Power“ (KFG) invites you to a lecture with Etel Solingen, Chancellor’s Professor at the University of California Irvine and currently visiting scholar at the KFG at the Freie Universität Berlin.

In her talk, Solingen will explore the reciprocal relationship between dilemmas of sovereignty and state power. She applies her argument on the rise of China as a great power, on the variations in regional cooperation in the Middle East and East Asia, as well as to the evolving non-proliferation regime.

Etel Solingen‘s research focuses on the reciprocal influence between international security and international political economy, and domestic and international politics. She is interested in the application of institutional theory, comparative political economy, and theories on regionalism on the settings in the Middle East, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Latin America. Her most recent book Nuclear Logics: Contrasting Paths in East Asia and the Middle East (Princeton University Press 2007) is the recipient of the 2008 Woodrow Wilson Foundation Award for the best book on government, politics, or international affairs by the American Political Science Association. Etel Solingen serves currently as Review Essay Editor for International Organization.
