In June 2018 I participated in a workshop exploring the Practice-Normativity Nexus in International Relations Theory organised by Anna Leander, Antje Wiener, and Ole Jacob Sending. At the workshop, I presented my latest work on the Violence Prevention (VIPRE) Initiative and a related paper focused on the intersections between New Materialist theory and socio-political critique. Other participants at the workshop included Anna Leander, Stefano Guzzini, Antje Wiener, Ole Jacob Sending, Keith Krause, Philip Liste, Annabelle Littoz-Monnet, Mervyn Frost, Rahel Kunz, Thomas Biersteker, Elisabeth Prugl, Xymena Kurakowska, Klaus Dingwerth, and others.
