Alasdair S. Roberts writes an essay about the role realism plays in international and domestic politics

Alasdair S. Roberts, director of the School of Public Policy and faculty at the Department of Political Science, writes an essay in The Conversation about the role realism plays in international and domestic politics. He says the current political situation is “difficult but not unusual” and says a sense of fragility is the norm. Roberts says the proper response to anxiety and this sense of fragility is the recognition that it cannot be avoided and that openness, something that promotes freedom and demonstrates resilience, is the realist solution that works.
