Department of International Politics will hold an international conference ‘Emancipatory Realism: Ken Booth and the Discipline of International Relations’ on 15–16 March, 2013. The conference aims to examine Ken Booth’s contribution to International Relations Theory and Security Studies. His work provided the starting point for what is now recognized as the ‘Welsh’ or ‘Aberystwyth’ School of Critical Security Studies worldwide.

The speakers include some of the world-leading scholars from Britain, Australia, Canada, South Africa, and Turkey. Professor Booth will be present and will be the event’s final speaker.

The conference is kindly supported by the Aberystwyth University Research Fund, David Davies Memorial Institute, British International Studies Association, Sage Publications, and the Department of International Politics.
