Andy Knight elected as a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada

We were very pleased to learn that political scientist (and Ashgate author) Andy Knight was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada late last year. A great honour!

Together with Mojtaba Mahdavi, Andy Knight is editor of a forthcoming book from Ashgate, Towards the Dignity of Difference? Neither “End of History” nor “Clash of Civilizations”. The book is due for publication in September.

The book suggests that there is a ‘third way’ of addressing global tensions – one that rejects the extremes of both universalism and particularism. It is about difference and dialogue; it embraces the dignity of difference and promotes dialogue. However, it also demonstrates the limits of dialogue as a useful and universal approach for resolving conflicts, particularly in cases involving asymmetric and unequal power relations.
