CMS Research Seminar: Is Strategy Strategically Useful?
In strategic affairs – high-politics, survival, national security, war-avoidance and war-fighting – the ideal of strategy as a purposeful and deliberate political activity continues to play a significant role in the way practitioners and scholars alike approach the topic. But what is the strategic utility of this idea of strategy, of strategizing and strategies as practices of statecraft? What are the pitfalls of the broader project of strategy? What connections are there to other regimes of public governance? Can we conceive of strategy in a way that enables both clearheaded policy-making and dispassionate scholarship?
These are the themes to be discussed at the CMS Research Seminar with:
Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, University of Edinburgh
Professor of International Relations, Centre for International Studies, SciencesPo
Head of Department, Department of Political Science, UCPH
Professor of International Relations, Department of Political Science
