The Duck of Minerva

Thursday Morning Linkage

6 December 2012

And also:

  • A nice piece by Erik Voeten contextualizing the implications of the Senate rejection of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. And by “contextualizes” I mean places it within the IR literature. Peter Sprio, for his part, describes it as a victory for the sovereignists and discusses next steps.
  • If you haven’t read it, you really should look at Brian Rathbun’s piece (here at the Duck) on the trajectory of academic international-relations scholarship. I’m disappointed at the lack of discussion. 
  • Also, if you’re not reading the Disorder of Things’ symposium on Open Access… then you should be.  
  • I forgot to mention that I was on a MuggleNet Academia Podcast courtesy of the awesome John Granger.
  • BLTN: Taylor Favrel examines the future of PRC foreign policy.
  • I hope to have a status report on the OAISes later today.
