Is Great Power status essentially material or normative? An Historical Materialist Interpretation.
This article seeks to integrate some of the premises of historical materialism into the English School ES of international relations in order to help overcome the frequent mismatch between ES theory and concrete historical practice This article seeks to integrate some of the premises of historical materialism into the English School ES of international relations in order to help overcome the frequent mismatch between ES theory and concrete historical practice.
Because norms and rules constitute the defining analytical framework of the ES, deviations from such codes of conduct signal the inexplicable presence of disorder. This theoretical limit can be seen in three examples of ES analysis on the rise and evolution of Latin America, which separately focus on the determinant role of rights, recognition and norms. Yet the assumed primacy of these codes of conduct produces a series of paradoxes that cannot be solved within the confines of inter-subjective norms and rules.
In contrast, the article proposes a class-relational analysis that articulates the diverse norms and discourses of agents through the concrete socio-political relations of power in which they are embedded. Drawing upon a critical Gramscian approach, the article will offer an historical reconstruction of Latin America’s emergence that better grounds the actual practice of rights, recognition and norms, and thus facilitating a deeper analytical purchase of ES concepts by recognising the inextricable relationship between order and disorder in the making of international society.
English School Theory at the Regional Level. The Middle East was always an area of great controversy for both scholars and policy makers. The academic medium had vastly argued the compatible theoretical framework for analyzing the region, and its application with respect to the The academic medium had vastly argued the compatible theoretical framework for analyzing the region, and its application with respect to the events and empirical data.
The Anarchical Society: A Study of Order in World Politics
It was in the light of this contestation, where the argument was raised, if the Middle East casts an exception to IR theories and international society norms and practices.
The authors aim to contribute to the tradition of the English School, by bringing the concept of international society into the regional level, as well as introducing a new understanding of the Middle East by applying the concept of international society to it. For such, it inspires a potential mutual contribution between IR theories and Middle East studies. Post-Liberalism and the Human Future. At the end of the twentieth century the triumph of capitalism and liberal democracy seemed so complete that Hegel’s spectre of the end of history was raised.
However, the financial crisis and, more acutely, the threat of Islamism has However, the financial crisis and, more acutely, the threat of Islamism has shaken such complacency so that John Milbank and Adrian Pabst speak of liberalism in metacrisis.
The solution to the problem which is a composite of left wing social and right wing economic liberalism is in line with the theological position of Radical Orthodoxy: Liberalism is rooted in an anthropology that the authors believe is bound to self-destruct, whether this is through the Hobbesian idea that man is in a war of all against all or the Lockean anthropology of man as a self-owning animal. Although these doctrines are false, they are self-fulfilling and tend to bring about the triumph of vice over virtue.
We must look, rather, to Aristotle’s zoon politikon as expanded by Aquinas for a new ” settlement ” based on sharing risk, responsibilities, and resources. Noting that this may be deemed unrealistic the authors challenge the very idea of realism as amoral pragmatism. Although they do not use the term their idea seems to be that the experiment of history vindicates true realism, the rejection of ethics being ultimately unsustainable. The structure of the book is clear enough.
In five sections on politics, economics, polity, culture, and international relations the metacrisis is first diagnosed and then the post-liberal alternative prescribed.
I shall focus on the ninth chapter diagnosing the international crisis. I found the argument difficult to follow at times, possibly because of the paradoxical situation that I take the authors to be addressing, namely, that on the one hand liberalism is a reality, one that is in crisis and that needs replacing, and on the other hand, post-liberalism is already upon us in many ways, often negative.
What is clear is the conviction that medieval Christendom in some sense represents a positive and viable model for the way ahead. Whilst it is conceded that the Western carving up of the Ottoman Empire was partly responsible for the rise of Islamism, the authors point to the longevity of Sunni-Shiite hostilities, and obviously think that even if ISIS is defeated in the near future it is quite possible that a successor may arise soon after.
The significance is broached in the next section on Liberal Hegemony: The authors attribute this to a contradiction within liberalism itself: However, despite the crisis, this world order looks as though it will be around some time and so the authors moot the idea of ” international society ” formulated by the English school of IR.
Still, Western power is on the wane, indeed, the liberal order is in metacrisis.
This is attributed to internal contradictions that stem ultimately from atheism. The experiment of history, so to speak, vindicates prophets such as Fyodor Dostoevsky ” Without God, everything is permitted ” insofar as ethics is more and more reduced to power politics. Christopher Dawson, too, is invoked as pinpointing the internal contradictions. On the one hand, modernity inherently globalises and tends to release great energies, but on the other hand it tends to break down the bonds that draw humankind together.
Unsurprisingly we see a lack of vision by Western leaders, and a paralysis in their foreign policy. In this paper, the perspectives of the thinkers who are regarded as the founders of the English School are examined. In doing so, arguments, methodology and ontology on which the theory of the English School based will be explored. The concept explains how the anarchical structure of the international system operates. After its founding thinkers, the followers of the English School divided into two wings as normative writers and structural writers.
The writers in question and debates around the English School will be mentioned shortly to narrow down the scope of the paper.

Anarchy is one of the most important concepts in international theory; Thomas Hobbes is regularly invoked to illustrate the character and the consequences of anarchy.
In doing so, it advances a positive argument that presents Hobbes as a theorist of interstate society that is made and unmade in the way that God made the universe. The anarchy that is attributed to Hobbes is rooted in a theological dispute about the nature of God and the extent of his power, and which entails a particular way of constituting and comprehending reality.
When the implications of this dispute are taken into account it becomes evident that anarchy is neither an objective feature of a world composed of independent states nor an inescapable logical condition that follows the absence of central authority.
Rather, anarchy is an achievement of xnarquica, born of a particular time and place, which seeks a reflection of bbull in the mirror of eternity. International society’s challenge of targeted killing by drones.
Targeted killing by drones is a systemic driven instrumental practice that overrides societal non-instrumental practices that are essential for international society. Doing so, targeted killing by drones is not simply another form of Doing so, targeted killing by drones is not simply another form of inflicting violence by technical means to political opponents.
It also inflicts the agents applying this practice, tempting anaruica to frame it as a permissible measure to preserve soviedade society. The reliance on drones for targeted killing is a pursuit of non-societal practices that seek individual and retributive justice and anticipatory and preventive self-defence by means of force relying on technological advantage.
Eventually, this practice permits military hdeley to steer political strategy, mitigating standards bul, practices agreed on in international society’s norms, rules of conduct, and institutions.

To illustrate, I draw upon cultural heritage, assaults on which have spurred construction of a global international architecture and associated practices to protect, conserve, and protect cultural heritage, while later developments have sought to re produce the very globality such practices presume.
English School theorists argue that primary institutions uphold order in international society. However, they disagree about what those primary institutions actually are. Moreover, comparatively little research tackles the links between Moreover, comparatively little research tackles the links between primary institutions and secondary ones, embodied in international organizations. Yet, these different levels of international institutions contribute in specific ways to change and stability in international affairs.
I argue for understanding primary institutions as practice-based and continuously discursively constructed. This allows us to explore how international organizations, although created by states, can themselves shape primary institutions.
This has produced a lock-in bll the primary institution. Indeed, we should recognize that such tension between institutions, rather than stability and harmony among them, reflects the normal state of affairs in international society.
