Hans-Martin Jaeger is Associate Professor of Political Science at Carleton University. Prior to joining Carleton he taught at the University of Central Florida. Hans-Martin’s research interests are in international political theory and sociology, global governance and international organization, international public spheres and global civil society, and critical international relations theory. He has published articles on these subjects in International Theory, European Journal of International Relations, International Political Sociology, Review of International Studies, and Zeitschrift für Internationale Beziehungen.
Jaeger’s talk will use Chantal Mouffe’s discussion of cosmopolitanism and multipolar order as a vantage point for a discussion of the political and post-political in the global governance projects of the European Union (EU) and the BRICS group. It complicates Mouffe’s position by mobilizing Foucauldian governmentality analysis and Jacques Rancière’s conception of politics.
