Post-Structural Politics (PPWG)
To join a working group you must first join BISA.
The Poststructural Politics Working Group (PPWG) brings together researchers who take inspiration from the wide variety of poststructural approaches to International Relations. Through its constitutive openness, poststructuralism offers a radically different perspective on key questions in International Relations, challenging taken-for-granted understandings of the location of the international, and highlighting the many ways in which the political is produced and performed.
