Decolonizing International Relations Conference

The inaugural Decolonizing International Relations Conference led by Fletcher Students of Color and Allies aims to create a space for diverse perspectives in the study of International Relations theory and practice. The goal of this conference is to allow for critical intellectual exchange that surpasses the boundaries of traditional Western thought. We will be constructing theories as well as discussing principles, policies, and practices from underrepresented regions and perspectives while challenging the beliefs that are customarily taught in U.S.-based institutions.
