Upcoming guest lecture: Associate Professor Vincent Keating

We are pleased to welcome Associate Professor Vincent Keating from the University of Southern Denmark to give a lecture titled “Russian influence and soft power in the West”.

Vincent Keating is Head of Section and Associate Professor at the Department of Political Science and Public Management, University of Southern Denmark. He holds a PhD in International Relations at Aberystwyth University and has published widely on various central issues of international politics, including articles in Review of International Studies and The British Journal of Politics and International Relations and the monograph US Human Rights Conduct and International Legitimacy: The Constrained Hegemony of George W. Bush (Palgrave Macmillan 2014). In this lecture, Dr Keating’s point of departure is that Russia’s conservative values and illiberal governance models generate admiration and followership not only in the neighbouring countries but also in the Western world.

Time and place: 12th December 10-12, Publicum building, 1st floor, PUB3 lecture hall.
