While International Relations scholarship has conventionally focused on the role that great powers play in shaping the norms, rules and practices that structure world politics, Latin American states have long been active participants in the international order. Together with Dr. Tom Long (University of Warwick), Dr. Schulz was recently awarded a four-year Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) grant to study the “peripheral” origins of international order. In his talk, Dr. Schulz will speak about this project, which explores the sources of Latin American internationalism, its impact on international order, and the conditions under which seemingly marginal actors exercised agency globally.
