Book launch of 'Hybrid Political Order and the Governance of Uncertainty' by Nora Stel

Date: 23 February 2022, 15:00 to 16:30

Chair: Dr Stephan Engelkamp, Lecturer in International Relations Education, Department of War Studies

Dr Craig Larkin, Senior Lecturer in Comparative Politics of the Middle East, Department of War Studies

The Research Centre in International Relations at King’s College London presents Dr Nora Stel's new book, Hybrid Political Order and the Politics of Uncertainty, which critically explores the parallels between Lebanon’s engagement with the recent Syrian refugee influx and the more protracted Palestinian presence.

Lebanon hosts the highest number of refugees per capita worldwide and is central to European policies of outsourcing migration management. Building on critical refugee studies, hybrid governance, and ignorance studies, she proposes a conceptual framework to capture the spatial, temporal, and procedural dimensions of the uncertainty that refugees face, exploring ambiguity as a component of a governmentality that enables the control, exploitation, and expulsion of refugees.
