Published on: 7th March, 2021

Dr. Karim Makdisi, Associate Professor of International Politics and director of the Graduate Program in Public Policy and International Affairs at AUB, explains how scholars from the Global South increasingly engage their colleagues in the North and West to shape a new field of “Global IR”.
