Book Launch - The Constitution of Social Practices

This book contends that practices are perhaps the most fundamental building-block of social reality.  What then would social scientists’ research look like if they took this insight seriously?  The book argues that to be effective, social-scientific inquiry requires the detailed empirical study of human practices.  At the same time, it makes a case for the central place in social theory and the philosophy of the social sciences of a well-developed practice theory.

Should Security (Ever) Trump Rights?

Are the Trump administration’s attempts to restrict entry into the US a response to legitimate security concerns or an abrogation of basic legal protections for individuals and families? To what extent is Brexit driven by concern of Eastern European migrants or Syrian refugees? Do EU designations of “safe” countries or deals with Turkey and Libya to preclude migration around the Mediterranean undermine the non-refoulement norm? Should anti-foreigner sentiment in South Africa be labelled xenophobia, a term typically associated with racism?
