What is Demcon?

"De-parochializing Political Theory"

August 2, 2012 - 7:30pm - August 4, 2012 - 3:00pm
Hosted by the University of Victoria
Victoria, BC, Canada

This workshop builds upon and concludes a three-year project, “East Asian Perspectives on Politics,” whose purpose is to advance research in the emerging field of comparative political theory.  The core premise of the project is that under conditions of globalization, there is an urgent need to develop frameworks for the normative analysis of political structures and institutions that are mutually intelligible across the intellectual traditions and political discourses of diverse human cultures and civilizations.  The workshop will focus especially on the prospects for dialogue between political theory in the European/North American and East Asian traditions, although it will also reflect upon comparative political theory more generally.
