A Kellogg-sponsored lecture by William Bain, who holds a joint appointment at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Department of Political Science and as Head of Studies for Global Affairs at Yale-NUS College. International order is normally seen as a secular arrangement, established by independent states to satisfy wants and desires including peace, security, wealth, and power. This project challenges the view that this framework is distinctively modern and secular. Bain argues that this conventional understanding is, in fact, a worldly application of a Christian theological pattern with medieval roots. Uncovering these theological and medieval foundations of international order invites revision of much of what is taken for granted in international theory, such as the historical narratives used by international theorists. It also provides a timely reminder that the quest for a truly global international theory must begin with better self-understanding.…

Europe is going through some deeply troubling times. After the murder of a 35-year old German in Chemnitz, for which a 22-year-old Iraqi citizen and a Syrian refugee are wanted, right-wing extremists have responded with violent rallies and calls for harming foreigners. These stories of the Chemnitz riots are barely two weeks old, and this past weekend new protest marches occurred in the small town of Köthen after the death of a 22-year old German. With their calls for violence against foreigners, right-wing populists and nativists are threatening the fabric of European unity and integration that many of us had taken for granted as the status quo--and politicians like Angela Merkel are under scrutiny for their open-door politics.…

Join the Kellogg Institute in commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Chilean plebiscite of October 5, 1988, which opened the way to a return to democracy in the country. It occurred after an innovative and historic campaign against all odds that was planned in part by fellows of the Kellogg Institute from its earliest years. Key leaders from both sides of the aisle will discuss the "NO" campaign, Chile’s remarkable transition back to democracy, and lessons from the past 30 years, particularly as they might apply to struggles in democracy facing various parts of the world today.…

A lecture by Elizabeth Sperber, assistant professor of political science at the University of Denver. Since the end of the Cold War, Pentecostal Christianity has emerged as a politically salient identity in some sub-Saharan states, but not others. This paper offers new theory and evidence to help explain why. Sperber argues that African ruling parties have played critical but understudied roles in facilitating the growth and politicization of new Pentecostal constituencies. Their incentive to do so derives in part from prior pro-democratic mobilization of their national Catholic or mainline Protestant churches. Her research combines a novel cross-national empirical strategy with analysis of original data from Zambia and finds strong support for the argument. It also illuminates how greater integration of research on African cases advances the study of the political economy of religion more broadly: Whereas extant theory assumes that government intervention in the religious sphere reduces religious competition, this paper identifies conditions under which governments face incentives to increase religious competition within their borders.
Featuring Siobhan McEvoy-Levy, professor of Peace and Conflict Studies and Political Science and director of The Desmond Tutu Peace Lab at Butler University.

A lecture by Shan Huang, Beijing-based deputy managing editor and an editorial board member of Caixin Media. What is the state of Chinese homegrown tech sector and to what extent does China’s indigenous innovation challenge US dominance? Opinions vary widely on where the Chinese tech sector falls within the global pecking order.

A Ford Seminar with Kellogg Faculty Fellow Terry Johnson. The Ford Program Research Seminar meets monthly, providing faculty members doing research supported by or related to the Ford Program’s mission the chance to share their work, whether in early, middle or late stages of development. It is an opportunity for colleagues to come together in a friendly atmosphere to offer constructive feedback and perhaps come away with some new ideas for our own human development/human dignity-related research. The Seminar hopes to build intellectual community around the Ford Program’s mission of conducting research that promises to deepen our understanding of human dignity and enhance the effectiveness of efforts to promote integral human development. …

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. A lecture by Graeme Gill, a fall 2018 Kellogg Institute Visiting Fellow. Accepted wisdom says dictators rule in an arbitrary and willful manner, with their subordinate leaders living in constant fear, always vulnerable to the dictator’s will, and always looking to defend themselves in a Hobbesian war of all against all. Gill challenges that notion by looking at two of the most heinous dictators of the 20th century, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong.…
