Dr  Andrew  Schaap teaches Politics at the University of Exeter. His  research broadly aims to conceptualize political  action,  politicization,  and  the  constitution  of  political  community.  He  draws  on  debates  in  political  theory  about’agonism’ (the Ancient Greek term for   the  struggle for distinction among citizens) and the concept of the  political (more or less  synonymous  with  ‘polity’  or  ‘the  common’)  to  examine  issues  surrounding  democratic  praxis,  the politics of  reconciliation  and human rights. Andrew is the author of  Political Reconciliation  (Routledge 2005), editor of  Law and Agonistic Politics  (2009) and co-editor (with Vras Karalis and Dani Celermajer) of  Power, Judgment and Political Evil  (2010) and (with Gary Foley and Edwina Howell) of The Aboriginal Tent Embassy (2013).

Professor  Herman van der Wusten was Professor of Political Geography at the University of Amsterdam and dean  of  the  Faculty  of  Social  and  Behavioural  Sciences  at  that  university,  now  emeritus.  He  did  a  PhD  on  Irish  resistance movements to the United Kingdom 1800-1922, and wrote on urban questions, nationalism and global politics. In recent times he  has  concentrated  on  the  making  of  political  centres,  particularly  in  Europe,  and  has  thus  become  involved  in  studies  of diplomatic practice. This work has notably appeared in  European Review  (1993),  Political Geography  (2004),  Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie (2006, 2010), several of Peter Taylor’s edited collections on Global and World Cities, and in Robert Denemark’s multivolume  International Studies Encyclopedia  (2010). Some of these contributions have been written in close co-operation with Virginie Mamadouh.
