- The Enigmatic Figure of the Non-Western Thinker in International Relations - Robbie Shilliam

Robbie Shilliam discusses the marginalisation of non-Western perspectives in the discipline of International Relations, and seeks to provoke a 'critical engagement with the non-Western subject as thinker rather than as object' of thought. For him, this engagement has the potential to retrieve the 'global-colonial' rather than the 'narrowly European or Western context within which thought on the modern experience has been developed', thereby providing 'deeper insights into the racial, religious, and cultural dimensions of the making of the modern world'.
