All Hail to the Chief: Liberal IR Theory in the New World Order.

  • Academic Journal
  • International Studies Perspectives. Feb2015, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p40-49. 10p.
  • Analytical pluralism in IR theory is a welcome development, yet it may also play a role in reifying our contemporary liberal world order. While there is clearly greater analytical diversity in the IR discipline today than in the latter half of the twentieth century, it is a diversity that is contained within the boundaries of acceptable liberal discourse. As a result, it does not constitute a challenge to dominant disciplinary ways of knowing and being. IR theory may enjoy a circumscribed version of analytical diversity in which multiple voices may speak but power does not listen. This possibility and its implications are considered, with particular attention paid to liberalism and positivism as the dominant analytical project of the contemporary moment. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
