I'm very much looking forward to travelling to Tampere in Finland next week for what should be a fascinating workshop on the subject of "planet politics."
For those of you who may not be familiar, Planet Politics: A Manifesto from the End of IR
was published two years ago. This workshop continues the conversation that has resulted therefrom.
It is open to whoever may be interested, so if you happen to be in the area next week, just drop Hannes Peltonen
(If the below is a bit fuzzy, click the image for higher resolution.)
My own contribution will involve a somewhat critical analysis of the debate thus far, particularly arguing that if planet politics as a 'thing' is to be more than just another re-branding effort for environmental politics then we need to give much more thought to reconceptualising the planetary as such.
