Aid Imperium: US Foreign Policy and Human Rights in Post-Cold War Southeast Asia (US in the Globe series)
This lecture will be on Aid Imperium (University of Michigan Press, 2021). Deploying global numerical data on US foreign aid and comparative historical analysis of America’s post–Cold War foreign policies in Southeast Asia, Aid Imperium highlights the active political agency of Global South states and actors as they negotiate and chart their political trajectories with the United States as the core state of the international system. This multidisciplinary study explains how US foreign policy affects state repression and physical integrity rights outcomes in Southeast Asia and the rest of the Global South.
Dr. Salvador Santino Fulo Regilme Jr. is a Tenured University Lecturer of International Relations at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands.
