Despite attempts to redress the balance, International Relations as a discipline is still dominated by Western theories. The contributors to this book explore the challenges of constructing an alternative, with a dialogue between global and local approaches.

Drawing on scholars with backgrounds in the US, Europe, Asia and South America, this volume attempts to critically engage with and reflect upon existing traditions of IR theory, to produce a deeply pluralist approach. Traditions, cultures, histories and practices from around the world influence their respective theoretical understanding and in turn explain why the Western tradition of IR is insufficient.

This book provides great insight for scholars of International Relations from around the world, looking for more diversity in IR theory.
