SOCIO-UK-IR (2013-2017)

This is a project funded by the European Commission (€100,000) under its 7th Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP7-PEOPLE-2012-CIG — Grant #322146). It aims to investigate the macro- and micro-social factors and processes governing the production, organisation, transmission, and diffusion of knowledge pertaining to the international. Its conceptual, theoretical, and empirical framework is fundamentally cross-disciplinary, drawing on social and historical epistemology, social theory, and the history and sociology of knowledge and science. The overall objective is to illuminate the material and ideational factors that shape scholarly standpoints and practice, and thereby advance a praxeological and naturalist approach to epistemology.
