Rule and Rupture is an interdisciplinary research programme. We aim to investigate how political authority is constituted after moments of rupture. The focus is on the global south.
Rule and Rupture is directed by Christian Lund.
The programme is based at the Department of Food and Resource Economics, IFRO, at the University of Copenhagen, and runs for five years (2016-2020).
