Résumé

The Doctoral Workshops initiative is the result of the cooperation in the areas of research and graduate teaching between Sciences Po, PUC-Rio, King's College and Univesity of Victoria during the last three years. It represents an attempt to enhance and structure the ongoing cooperation between these institutions to create the core of a network of institutions promoting a different way to do and to learn International Relations called International Political Sociology. The workshop will investigate the large spectrum of methods going beyond or against the diktat of rational choice theory in IR, ranging from discourse analysis, ethnographic methods, actor-network theory, approaches of limits and boundaries, genetic structuralism, socio-history. The workshop will gather researchers and students who, in the course of their research, are facing the problems posed by the impossibility of shifting from the “national” to the “global” and who consider the international as a central question that determines the conditions of possibility of political practices.
