Overview

Principled World Politics takes stock of contemporary normative international relations and aims to chart the future course of the discipline. The volume brings together the most innovative minds currently working in the field and presents their ideas of how to create a more humane world order. Renowned scholars from around the world explain how to advance the prospects of world peace, economic well-being, social justice, and humane governance. They further examine the changing character of normative theory and how it can more effectively engage contemporary world affairs. As normative IR enjoys a resurgence of interest, this unique and timely volume is the first to systematically organize and present contemporary scholarship and to set out a coherent agenda for the next century.

Robert W. Cox
There is always a normative perspective in analyses of human affairs, sometimes explicit but often hidden under a claim to value-free research. This book is a dialogue among scholars who, in the spirit of Richard Falk, aim to further social justice, ecological balance, and recogniton of cultural diversity. They recognize that such goals can only be pursued effectively through a realistic analysis of the limits of the possible.
