The Politics of Intimacy: Exploring the Intersections of Policies and Emotions

The Institute of International Relations Prague and the journal New Perspectives would like to cordially invite you to a seminar with Dr. Anna Durnová, Senior Research Fellow, University of Vienna. In her research, Dr. Durnová explores how emotions inform particular arguments or narratives leading to policies. The lenses of emotions reach beyond explanation through cultural or ethical/ideological imprints and offer a novel understanding of governing processes in the context of world politics, which has put in place novel power orders for Western liberal democracies. The talk will be broadly based on the forthcoming book by Dr. Durnová The Politics of Intimacy: Rethinking the End-of-Life Controversy.

The event will take place on 25 May from 17:00 at the Institute of International Relations Prague (Nerudova 3).

Past Events
Cooperation Between the Visegrad Countries and Brazil, China, India and South Africa

The Institute of International Relations organized a roundtable on the future of the cooperation between the Visegrad countries and Brazil, China, India and South Africa. In this roundtable representatives of the countries on which the report focused, the co-authors of the report V4 Goes Global: Exploring Opportunities and Obstacles in the Visegrad Countries' Cooperation with Brazil, India, China and South Africa, representatives of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs and members of the broader public discussed questions such as “What are the main obstacles to the cooperation, and what action(s) could be taken to overcome them?”
Migration: An Opportunity, Not a Threat?

The Institute of International Relations was happy to host, in cooperation with the Embassy of Canada, an expert public discussion with François Crépeau, a Professor and Hans and Tamar Oppenheimer Chair in Public International Law at McGill University; and a United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants. Why should Europeans organise rather than prevent migration to Europe? Why is there so much opposition to and fear of inward migration? Is this justified? What benefits and opportunities do migrants bring? These and many more pressing questions were raised during the discussion, and you can now see the answers in the video from the event.

The newly opened Centre for International Law of the Institute of International Relations Prague was happy to host a public lecture by Prof. Dr. Anne Peters, LL.M., the Director of the  Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg and a well-known expert on international law.
