The Conceptual Limits of Uneven and Combined Development and the Exterior of the International

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)

Abstract

This paper critiques the anti-Eurocentric claims made by scholars’ applying Leon Trotsky’s idea of uneven and combined development (UC&D’s) to the field of international relations. It draws upon Enrique Dussel’s Philosophy of Liberation, and the case of the Sámi people to illustrate U&CD’s problematic reliance on the concept of development and insufficient understanding of territoriality
