Transnational Flows, Humanitarian Technologies

Friday, July 18, 2014: 8:30 AM-10:20 AM
Room: Booth 45
RC18 Political Sociology (host committee)

Language: English

In the past decade, the recognition of the political implications of transnational flows and non-state actors has opened up new empirical questions and theoretical concerns in political sociology. The papers in this panel examine the role of different non-state actors in different transnational contexts, taking their claim to provide socially desirable goods seriously but examining mediating practices, insititutional contexts and contradictory outcomes with an open mind.
