Evgeny Roshchin on Voices podcast

June 6, 2023

UCHV research scholar, Evgeny Roshchin, was interviewed on the podcast series Voices hosted by the European International Studies Association. Episode 17 "What is...Friendship in International Politics?" features Roshchin in conversation with Felix Berenskötter, SOAS University of London, discussing the development of the concept of friendship in international diplomacy and Western political philosophy. Over the last two decades, scholars have been challenging the assumptions that "friendship is apolitical and not something that exists between communities such as states." Roshchin's interview explores the concept of friendship and its bearing on authority, sovereignty, empire and law as discussed in his book, "Friendship Among Nations: History of a Concept."
