The Changing Nature of Society and its International Relations Implication
Within this interview Christopher HILL goes back to his scientific background in History: a very personal reason to study the origins of World War II (WWII). The main problem he is revealing is the question: “What was the “decision making” process to enter the WWII?”. Hill is approaching then the Political science as new, detached view, of History analysis. His entrance into London School of Economics(LSE) in 1970s in the Department of International Relations marks an introduction of Hill's special teaching area: Foreign Policy and analysis. The lifetime experience of Hill shows the example of a challenging relationship between a PhD supervisor and a PhD student.
Digging in his research experience, Hill is treating the geographical and cultural ranges as embedded into the society through the Political subject. In the same line of thoughts and under the influence of Roberts, Hill is seeking to understand how the international relations politics affects ordinary people's life, especially trough the example of the War. He is analysing the case of the post-Cold war period imposing the idea of the end of the nation-state and the frenzy of the Globalisation.
However, according to Hill, one could not and should not ignore the role of the State. He defends the idea that the job of the intellectuals and the social scientists is to analyse the relation between continuity and change. And Hill observes that process in the relationship between the member-states and the European Union. He is pursuing his analysis through the observation on "How international politics affects domestic life?" applied on contemporary London and assumes that the changing nature of society has international relations implication.
Two anecdotes of the end of the interview are witnessing the great outcome of the career of Christopher Hill: the first one is about loosing innocence. The second: a story about the Cold War.
