This is a CIS and GEG co-sponsored event.

If you would like to attend this event please register by emailing Matthew Kennedy (matthew.kennedy@politics.ox.ac.uk). Draft chapters of the book manuscript will be sent, in advance of the event, to those that confirm they are attending.

On 19 May, the Centre for International Studies (CIS) and The Global Economic Governance Programme (GEG) will co-host a book manuscript workshop on Lauge Poulsen’s book-in-progress ‘Letting Down the Guard: Developing Countries, Bounded Rationality, and the Diffusion of Investment Treaties’. Rooted in insights from behavioural economics, the book argues that developing countries were often ‘predictably irrational’ when signing up to one of the most potent international legal regimes underwriting economic globalization.

First Discussants: Duncan Snidal (Professor of International Relations, University of Oxford) and Thomas Hale (Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Blavatnik School of Government and Senior Researcher, GEG). 

Convenors: Lauge Poulsen (Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Nuffield College) and Kalypso Nicolaidis (Professor of International Relations, University of Oxford)
