With Neil Munro, University of Glasgow; Jacob Høigilt, University of Oslo/PRIO; Li Hongtao, Zhejiang University

This seminar discusses how people living in authoritarian societies make up their minds about their governing system and how they maneuver within its constraints. How do people living under authoritarianism perceive their society, and what matters are important to their views about its governance? How can they expand and/or utilize their room of maneuver to pursue their aims while supposedly being in conformity with authorities? Who are in alliance with the system, and how can we distinguish those who oppose it? In addition, we will discuss how to conduct research in a way that produces reliable information while protecting the interests of informants.

A seminar with Iver B. Neumann, Montague Burton Professor of International Relations, London School of Economics

Power is the ability to get someone to do what they otherwise would not have done. Authority is the actualisation of power: it is about the ability to have an order or a truth claim accepted.  If this ability concerns a specific issue, someone is an authority. If it is a more generalises ability someone is in authority. The lecture traces and discusses these two concepts in social theory.
