Sussex International Theory Lectures

CAIT organizes a number of lecture series designed to bring outstanding international theorists and cutting edge research in International Relations to Sussex.  

International Theory Lectures touch on both core concerns of international theorising and at the same time acknowledge the interdisciplinary influences of international theory. Previous speakers have included William E. Scheuerman, Mitchell Dean and Vivek Chibber.  Some of our upcoming speakers include Dr Meera Sabartnam and Dr Priyamvada Gopal who will be delivering our annual Sussex Theory Lecture on 29 April 2020.
