Dr. Paul Rekret publishes new article on critical IR Theory

Paul Rekret, Associate Professor of International Politics at Richmond, has just published a new article engaging critical theories of International Relations. In the essay, entitled ‘The Sovereignty of Sovereignty and the Restricted Scope of Critical IR’, Rekret argues that in grounding critique upon conceptual and methodological slippages and aporias of power’s foundations, critical theories of IR merely reproduce the very abstractions upon which that power is founded. In other words, resistance is conditioned and restricted by the philosophical move which inaugurates it.  The article can be read here.
