Live Encounters Magazine Volume Two December 2020

The critical problem with the field of international relations and studies as I know it, is that concepts that dominate (what is, and how we know what is) through theories like Realism, Marxism, Neo-Classical Realism, Critical Theory, Liberalism, Constructivism, Post-Modernism, are based on ideas originated in their modern form in academic circles that trace their affiliations in the West. This ethno-centric approach is then passed off as universal, instead of being offered as the North American area studies field or British or German, or French International relations. Stephan Walt vindicates my point by asserting that scholars outside of the Anglo-Saxon world are not offering big ideas or thinking on international relations, by which he means Great Power behavior, and hence, in this endeavor, U.S. centric authors dominate. – Namrata Goswami
