The Global Resurgence of Religion and the Transformation of International Relations

Author: S. Thomas
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9781403973993
Release Date: 2005-02-04
Genre: Social Science

This book is about the global resurgence of culture and religion in international relations, and how these social changes are transforming our understanding of International Relation theory, and the key policy-related issue areas in world politics. It is evident in the on-going debates over the 'root causes' of 9/11 that there are many scholars, journalists and members of the public who still believe culture and religion can be explained away by appeals to more 'basic' economic, social or political forces in society. Therefore The Global Resurgence of Religion and the Transformation of International Relations presents an argument for taking culture - and particularly religion - as social forces that are important for understanding world politics in the post-Westphalian era.

Selbstbeobachtung der modernen Gesellschaft und die neuen Grenzen des Sozialen

Author: Georg Peter
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783531196916
Release Date: 2012-09-22
Genre: Social Science

Die wissenschaftliche Diskussion ihrer Grundbegriffe hat gezeigt, dass eine soziologische Theorie der Gegenwartsgesellschaft nicht mehr fachspezifisch selbstgenügsam gestaltet werden kann. Veränderte Grenzziehungen auf Seiten der Gesellschaft treffen auf neue und zu verändernde Grenzen auf Seiten ihrer Wissenschaft: Globalisierung, Mitgliedschaft und Gruppe sind in ihrer zunehmenden Dynamisierung begrifflich in einem transdisziplinären Kontext neu zu fassen. Die Beiträge gehen diesem Forschungsproblem aus verschiedenen Perspektiven nach und werfen einen Blick auf die veränderte ästhetische Erfahrung in der gesellschaftlichen Kommunikation. ​

Religion in International Relations Theory

Author: Nukhet Sandal
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135045630
Release Date: 2013-06-19
Genre: Political Science

There is a growing realization among international relations scholars and practitioners that religion is a critical factor in global politics. The Iranian Revolution, the September 11 attacks, the ethno-religious conflicts such as the ones in the former Yugoslavia and Sri Lanka are among the many reasons for this increased focus on religion in international affairs. The rise of religious political parties across the world ranging from the Christian Democrats in Europe to Bharatiya Janata Party in India similarly illustrated religion's heightened international profile. Despite all this attention, it is challenging to situate religion within a discipline which has been dominantly secular from its inception. Only a few existent works have ventured to integrate religion into core international relations theories such as Classical Realism, Neorealism, Neoliberalism, Constructivism and the English school. This work is the first systematic attempt to comparatively assess the place of religion in the aforementioned theoretical strands of international relations with contemporary examples from around the world. Written in an accessible and systematic fashion, this book will be an important addition to the fields of both religion and international relations. Nukhet A. Sandal is Assistant Professor in the Political Science Department at Ohio University. Jonathan Fox is Professor in the Department of Political Studies at Bar Ilan University, Israel.

Religion and International Relations Theory

Author: Jack Snyder
Publisher: Columbia University Press
ISBN: 9780231526913
Release Date: 2011-03-31
Genre: Political Science

Religious concerns stand at the center of international politics, yet key paradigms in international relations, namely realism, liberalism, and constructivism, barely consider religion in their analysis of political subjects. The essays in this collection rectify this. Authored by leading scholars, they introduce models that integrate religion into the study of international politics and connect religion to a rising form of populist politics in the developing world. Contributors identify religion as pervasive and distinctive, forcing a reframing of international relations theory that reinterprets traditional paradigms. One essay draws on both realism and constructivism in the examination of religious discourse and transnational networks. Another positions secularism not as the opposite of religion but as a comparable type of worldview drawing on and competing with religious ideas. With the secular state's perceived failure to address popular needs, religion has become a banner for movements that demand a more responsive government. The contributors to this volume recognize this trend and propose structural and theoretical innovations for future advances in the discipline.

Genre: Political Science

"From issues concerning humanitarian intervention to advancing the Israel-Palestine peace process, God and Global Order provides the necessary tools to help policymakers better navigate the world of pervasive religion. This is a tonic for what ails the field of international affairs."-Allen Hertzke, author of Freeing God's Children: The Unlikely Alliance for Global Human Rights "A thoughtfully provoking overview working at the intersection of religion and realpolitik. It will quickly become a must-read for anyone who takes faith and international affairs seriously."-Chris Seiple, President, Institute for Global Engagement and Publisher of The Review of Faith & International Affairs "Wonderful grist for academicians and practitioners alike. This book of thoughtful essays by world-class authors advances the field of religion and foreign policy on a number of important fronts,"-Douglas M. Johnson, President, International Center for Religion & Diplomacy and author of Faith-Based Diplomacy: Trumping Realpolitik With an eye toward the turbulent century ahead, God and Global Order explores what international relations might look like if we took religion seriously, and in doing so implores policymakers to recognize the power of religion while crafting U.S. foreign policy. The contributors warn that ignoring the far-reaching role of faiths (those both religious and secular) and their influence upon international agendas could carry disastrous consequences û both for the U.S. and for the larger global order.
