Christian Pfenninger, doctoral researcher in politics and international relations at the University of Westminster, will be presenting the paper 'Porous Sovereignties: The Geopolitics of Anarchism'.

Christian joined the Department of Politics and International Relations as a doctoral researcher and a visiting lecturer in 2012. Prior to joining the University of Westminster, he worked as an advisor for the Permanent Mission of Germany to the United Nations in Vienna, and as an intern to the Economic and Financial Committee at the Bavarian Parliament in Munich.

His current research deals with the conception of ‘anarchy’ within the IR discourse and the potential cross-pollination between classical anarchist thinkers and contemporary IR theory.

All welcome.
