InternationalRelationsをWorldPoliticsに改名したらどうか

(正確には、InternationalRelations国際関係学の名のもとではなく、今世界政治学という視点を持たないとだめなのでは?ということ)

教授の論文を読んでいて印象的だった2か所を引用

Adib-Moghaddam, Arshin, ‘Global Intifadah? September 11th and the Struggle Within Islam’, Cambridge Review of International Affairs, Vol. 15, No. 2, 2002, pp. 203-216.


西洋がアラブやイスラムを一つのカテゴリーとしてみなすのは、
イスラムテロ組織が西洋をひとまとめにして批判するのと同じだ↓

By externalising the significant ‘other’ as representation
of an imagined enemy, the West against the rest dichotomy is not very
different from the mental disposition behind the dar al-Islam (house of Islam,
forces of good) dar al-harb (forces of evil) distinction espoused by both Arab
nationalists and ‘Islamic’ fundamentalist movements. Both positions, Islam vs.
infidels and West vs. the rest, are intended to enforce categories and draw strict
boundaries between supposedly incompatible worldviews.

(国と国の関係という概念にとらわれてしまうとそれを超えた動き(アルカイダ組織など)を正確に読み取れなくなる)そこで、KeohaneのWorldPoliticsが忘れられているという意見が紹介される↓

In an essay published in the aftermath of September 11th,
Keohane argues that
Most problematic are the assumptions in international relations theory about the
roles played by states. There has been too much ‘international relations,’ and too
little ‘world politics,’ not only in work on security but also in much work on international institutions.
