File Name: globalisation of world politics by baylis and smith .zip
Some argue that the concept of international society is not incompatible with forms of imperial power, understood as hierarchal relations between states in the global North and South. Colonial territories of Germany and portions of the collapsed Ottoman Empire were turned into League Mandates, administered by Britain and France. Historians still dispute how far Hitler actually planned the war; whether he foresaw the extent of the war that began in ; and how ambitious Nazi territorial expansionism actually was European hegemony or world domination?
In foreign policy terms, ambitious territorial plans were mapped which went far beyond the revision of aspects of the Treaty of Versailles. World-systems theorists, for their part, accentuate the role of the global capitalist economy in bringing states and people into often dislocating proximity. British withdrawal from Asia came much more quickly after than from Africa. How far the arms race has had a momentum of its own is a matter of debate. Judging how close we came to nuclear war at these times remains a matter for debate.
The United States responded cautiously to his initiatives. The United States made some significant movement too, indicating that a polarized interpretation of the end of the Cold War is too simple and schematic.
A combination of factors including the early defeat of Iraq in , the collapse of the USSR, the long economic boom in America, and high levels of military expenditure, continued to guarantee US hegemony. Scepticism about the capacity of human reason to deliver moral progress resonates through the work of classical political theorists such as Thucydides, Machiavelli, Hobbes, and Rousseau.
In such circumstances, it is rational for states to compete for power and security. The most important cleavage is between those who grant theoretical primacy to human nature and those accentuate the importance of international anarchy and the distribution of power in the international system.
Neoclassical realists bring individual and until variation back into the theory while rational choice realists recognize the importance of international institutions. This involves two claims. First, for the theorist, the state is the pre eminent actor and all other actors in world politics are of lesser significance. Second, state 'sovereignty' signifies the existence of an independent political community, one which has juridical authority over its territory.
All other goals such as economic prosperity are secondary or 'low politics'. In order to preserve the security of their state, leaders must adopt an ethical code which judges actions according to the outcome rather than in terms of a judgement about whether the individual act is right or wrong. If there are any moral universals for political realists, these can only be concretized in particular communities. In international politics, the structure of the system does not permit friendship, trust, and honour; only a perennial condition of uncertainty generated by the absence of a global government.
Coexistence is achieved through the maintenance of the balance of power, and limited co operation is possible in interactions where the realist state stands to gain more than other states. Moreover, there are historical and contemporary examples where states have preferred collective security systems, or forms of regional security communities, in preference to self help.
From then on, liberal ideas have profoundly shaped how we think about the relationship between government and citizens. But note that these values and institutions allow for significant variations which accounts for the fact that there are heated debates within Liberalism. Prescriptively, Enlightenment liberals believed that a latent cosmopolitan morality could be achieved through the exercise of reason and through the creation of constitutional states.
In addition, unfettered movement of people and goods could further facilitate more peaceful international relations. For Idealists, the freedom of states is part of the problem of international relations and not part of the solution. Two requirements follow from their diagnosis. The first is the need for explicitly normative thinking: how to promote peace and build a better world. Second, states must be part of an international organization, and be bound by its rules and norms.
The victor states in the wartime alliance against Nazi Germany pushed for a new international institution to be created: the United Nations Charter was signed in June by fifty states in San Francisco. It represented a departure from the League in two important respects. Membership was near universal, and the great powers were able to prevent any enforcement action from taking place which might be contrary to their interests.
This was the catalyst for integration theory in Europe and pluralism in the United States. By the early s pluralism had mounted a significant challenge to realism.
It focused on new actors transnational corporations, non governmental organizations and new patterns of interaction interdependence, integration. Neo-liberals explain the durability of institutions despite significant changes in context.
According to neo-liberals, institutions exert a causal force on international relations, shaping state preferences and locking them in to cooperative arrangements.
In the policy world, neo-liberalism is identified with the promotion of capitalism and Western democratic values and institutions. These present more rigorous and scientific versions of the theories. They share many assumptions about actors, values, issues and power arrangements in the international system.
Neo-realists and neo-liberals study different worlds. Neo-realists study security issues and are concerned with issues of power and survival. Neo-liberals study political economy and focus on cooperation and institutions.
Waltz claims that the structure of the international system is the key factor in shaping the behaviour of states. Waltz's neo-realism also expands our view of power and capabilities; however, he agrees with traditional Realists when he states that major powers still determine the nature of the international system.
To these neo-realists, all states are functionally similar units, experiencing the same constraints presented by anarchy. They believe that force remains an important and effective tool of statecraft and balance of power is still the central mechanism for order in the system. Grieco claims that all states are interested in both absolute and relative gains.
How gains are distributed is an important issue. Thus, there are two barriers to international cooperation, fear of those who might not follow the rules and the relative gains of others.
Offensive neo-realists emphasize the importance of relative power. Like traditional Realists, they believe that conflict is inevitable in the international system and leaders must always be wary of expansionary powers.
Defensive Realists are often confused with neo-liberal Institutionalists. They recognize the costs of war and assume that it usually results from irrational forces in a society. However, they admit that expansionary states willing to use military force make it impossible to live in a world without weapons.
Cooperation is possible, but, it is more likely to succeed in relations with friendly states. These countries promote free trade and democracy in their foreign policy programmes.
Regimes and institutions help govern a competitive and anarchic international system and they encourage, and at times require, multilateralism and co operation as a means of securing national interests. They share an epistemology, focus on similar questions and they agree on a number of assumptions about international politics. This is an intra-paradigm debate. Neo-realists focus on security and military issues—the high politics issue- area.
Neo-liberal Institutionalists focus on political economy, environmental issues, and lately, human rights issues. These issues have been called the low politics issue agenda. Neo-liberal institutionalists are less concerned about relative gains and consider that all will benefit from absolute gains. For example, neo-realism cannot explain foreign policy behaviour that challenges the norm of national interest over human interests.
Neither theory addresses the impact of learning on the foreign policy behaviour of states. Transnational social movements have forced states to address critical international issues and in several situations that have supported the establishment of institutions that promote further cooperation and, fundamentally challenge the power of states.
Globalization challenges some areas of state authority and control; but, politics is still inter-national. Neo- realists are not supportive of any movement that seeks to open critical security issues to public debate. Eventually, all states will benefit from the economic growth promoted by the forces of globalization.
They believe that states should not fight globalization or attempt to control it with unwanted political interventions. New institutions can be created and older ones reformed to prevent the uneven flow of capital, promote environmental sustainability, and protect the rights of citizens. These hidden workings provide the context in which international events occur.
In particular he explored the processes by which consent for a particular social and political system was produced and reproduced through the operation of hegemony. Hegemony allows the ideas and ideologies of the ruling stratum to become widely dispersed, and widely accepted, throughout society. Cox have attempted to 'internationalize' Gramsci's thought by transposing several of his key concepts, most notably hegemony, to the global context.
The first generation of the Frankfurt School equated emancipation with a reconciliation with nature. Habermas has argued that emancipatory potential lies in the realm of communication and that radical democracy is the way in which that potential can be unlocked. He seeks to develop an alternative approach which understands historical change in world politics as a reflection of transformations in the prevailing relations of production. As a rough guide, explanatory theories tend to be foundational and constitutive theories tend to be anti-foundational.
One thing that they do share is a rejection of the core assumptions of Rationalist theories. Its central focus is with how societies develop the forms that they do. It is basically a study of the interactions between states, classes, capitalism, and war. He argues that the decisive reason was the ability of the national state to fight wars.
