International Relations, Old and New

International Relations, Old and New

(p.462) Chapter 19 International Relations, Old and New
A New Handbook of Political Science

Robert O. Keohane (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Provides a broad discussion of the methodological, conceptual, and theoretical issues faced by international relations and accounts for its main debates and transitions from the ‘old’ to the ‘new’. Old international relations, in realism, faced a changing global order. However, limitations can be transcended if modifications are made, liberal institutions analysed, the impact of international institutions considered, and subjectivity acknowledged. Although international relations has been humbled with the inability to predict complex events, theories with reduced expectations can successfully transcend the limitations of realism.

Keywords:   global change, international institutions, international relations, liberal institutions, methodology, realism, subjectivity
