University Research Chair in Global Political Thought
Michael Williams, Public and International Affairs
Michael Williams’ chair will focus on the impact of ideas on international politics. The chair will place current far right parties, movements and ideas in the context of both their cross-national ideological/organizational linkages and their long historical/ideological foundations. This will provide a comprehensive intellectual and institutional analysis of wider dynamics of radical conservatism, as well as focused analysis of some of the most important and revealing areas of radical conservatism’s current impact and a critical appraisal of their implications.
