Established in 2013, the Anti-Politics specialist group is dedicated to providing a forum for researchers examining those processes throughout society that seem to have marginalised normative political debates and fostered an air of disengagement, disaffection and disinterest in politics. Although these topics have been the subject of much research and academic debate for some time, scholars interested in these ‘anti-political’ phenomena have tended to talk past each other rather to each other. The purpose of this group is hence to foster interaction, collaboration and debate amongst researchers focusing on these disparate but potentially interconnected areas of research.
