The Role of Culture in International Relations Theories

The Role of Culture in International Relations Theories

The study of culture in international relations theories takes a wide range of complex issues, which without enough perception about these issues, certainly our understanding about the role of culture in international relations theories will be incomplete. Since in real world the study of international affairs is best understood as traditional competition between traditional mainstream theories like realism and liberalism, some special concepts like culture has been neglected, but after that when we reach to middle way and sub- theories of international relations we can see that the considering importance of culture has been growing and this concept has now become a permanent feature of these legged theories and international relations arena. This paper tries to introduce culture as an important concept in mainstream, middle way and sub-theories of inter- national relations. After studying about the subject, the authors reached to this conclusion that, despite being ignored in traditional theories, culture has extensive role in all international rela- tions theories and only with considering the political, security and economical issues, we won't be able to understand the realities of political events in field of international relations, So we need other concepts like 'culture' to be able to analyze the political international issues. This pa- per has been prepared with descriptive-analytical method, and for gathering information, li- brary- documents and World Wide Web have been used.

This is a repository copy of Returning to the root : radical feminist thought and feminist theories of International Relations.

Abstract: Feminist international relations (IR) theory is haunted by a radical feminist ghost. From Enloe’s suggestion that the personal is both political and international, often seen as the foundation of feminist IR, feminist IR scholarship has been built on the intellectual contributions of a body of theory it has long left for dead. Though Enloe’s sentiment directly references the Hanisch’s radical feminist rallying call, there is little direct engagement with the radical feminist thinkers who popularised the sentiment in IR. Rather, since its inception, the field has been built on radical feminist thought it has left for dead. This has left feminist IR troubled by its radical feminist roots and the conceptual baggage that feminist IR has unreflectively carried from second-wave feminism into its contemporary scholarship. By returning to the roots of radical feminism we believe IR can gain valuable insights regarding the system of sex-class oppression, the central role of heterosexuality in maintaining this system, and the feminist case for revolutionary political action in order to dismantle it.

international bargaining scenario. In general students assume the role of heads or leaders of states and seek specific objectives as the simulation unfolds. Through active participation students can apply new concepts and information, and observe the consequences of their decisions that enhance understanding of subject materials. Students can achieve a deeper level of insight into the political world, making theory more understandable. In the simulation scenarios students sit at the bargaining table to negotiate with each other. The settings contain elements of cooperation and conflict central to international relations. These activities help move concepts and theories from the abstract to concrete applications, providing for greater retention and understanding of abstract concepts.

McCarthy, a lecturer in International Relations at the University of Melbourne introduced a novel approach in his “Power, Information Technology, and International Relations Theory”. As this work is both pioneering and sophisticated, it will be fully adopted in this study and will form the backbone of the literature section. His argument asserts that, despite the obvious weight that ICTs have on theories in general, the design, development, and diffusion of what “Technological Artefacts” 1 has remained relatively understudied within the field.

The Concept of Power in International Relations

The Concept of Power in International Relations

The terms of Power, influence and authority could be heard in political world vastly, but using these terms is not leaving only to this realm. Despite its visual simplicity, generally there is not similar and equal perception about term of Power among people. Understanding about by politi- cians differs from lawyer perception about this term. What people takes about Power, totally differ from what a strategist interpret from. Role and influence of Power also among society is differs from its application in international relations. Power, undoubtedly is the most basic con- cept of registered knowhow over international relations. In fact, Power reflects relations be- tween activists in international relations, means that, international relations and perhaps more precisely, relations between states warrants Power relations between activists in this area. Ac- cording to this fact, variety in interpretation about Power in international relations have not been emerged but in variety of international relations theories. However, in ordinary understanding about International relations course, it has supposed that concept of Power closely has been made linkage with realism theory in its all forms, but it should be admitted that, today it could be possible to reach novel recognition about Power concept and its requirements by arising thoughtfulness approaches. Old politic scholars defined Power, in its general and ordinary con- cept, both as destiny and cause. In this interpretation, Power merely depends on level of ability and sovereignty of one party against other party(s), to oblige him to obey. In this view, whole life of people could be summarized as result of Power interactions in different domains and de- grees. Practical results achieved from present theory, which in some cases meets visions of be- havior – orientation is that, in international relations, there is no governing Power, or at least governing states do not recognize any Powers over their Power and sovereignty. In this ambigu- ous realm, some believes that lack of international governing Power, requires establishing a global state in form of an international contract. In contrast, there are many other groups that follow Power balance theory in relations of governing and dependent states. There is also a compromising theory.

domestic structures and that the present global economic order is unethical because of its role in perpetuating inequality. Citizens of affluent nations bear some responsibility for upholding this unjust system, through, for example, unfair trade rules and the international arms trade. He maintains that by upholding this coercive regime without actively working for its reform or compensating those it harms, we are partly responsible for the inequality it engenders. Like Beitz, he points to the unacceptability of Rawls’s double standard for national and international orders, saying: ‘we owe the global poor an account of why we take ourselves to be entitled to impose on them a global economic order in violation of the minimal moral constraints we ourselves place on the imposition of any national economic order’. 37 Pogge advocates an institutional understanding of justice, claiming that we have a duty not to uphold a coercive institutional order that avoidably restricts access to basic necessities for some human beings. He maintains that structural changes are needed to address the poverty and inequality that so often engender human rights abuses. One of the reforms he suggests is the instigation of a Global Resources Dividend (GRD) to improve the capacity of the global poor. The GRD is based on the

There is no map : international relations in the Americas

There is no map : international relations in the Americas

Perhaps nowhere is the absence of a shared map more noticeable than in the terrains of security and democracy. While never uncontested, the very meaning of the two concepts in the Americas has been thrown wide open in both politics and scholarship. Fragmentation of leadership has led to a fragmented agenda. These books seek to make sense of these contested fields. In a slim but insightful book, Heine and Weiffen illustrate the rise and partial decline of consensus on defining, promoting, and—especially— protecting democracy in the Americas. They briefly but systematically examine inter-American responses to threats to democracy since the 2001 Inter-American Democratic Charter took effect. While there has been progress since the Cold War—where a with-us-or-against-us ethos sometimes defined the map more than democratic practice—it is hard to feel optimism at the course of the last decade and a half. They conclude that “the defense of democracy regime, if not in tatters, has been seriously weakened by the broader tearing of the fabric of the pan-American idea” since 2000 (165), with blame falling both on inconsistent US support of democracy and the emergence of regional organizations more dedicated to preserving ideologically aligned incumbents than strengthening institutions of national and international accountability. The authors helpfully draw on IR and political science literatures on fragile democracies.
