about

Contemporary theory of international politics faces a twofold problem: the critical engagement with legacies of national power politics in connection to 20th Century International Relations and the regeneration of notions of humanity. This book contributes to this engagement by a genealogy of thoughts on war, peace, and ethics.
 He has published widely in international journals such as the European Journal of International Relations, Review of International Studies, Geopolitics, Encyclopaedia of Geography and International Political Economy.
