About the research
This fellowship will enable Prichard and Kinna to complete a monograph on anarchist constitutional politics. Their research reveals how anarchists constitutionalise: how and why they produce declarations, rules, institutions, and democratic decision-making procedures that shape the groups through which they act to change the world. The core aim is to theorise constitutional orders in anarchy – a central preoccupation for mainstream IR theory – but from an anarchist point of view.
