The Sociology of the State

Too often we think of the modern political state as a universal institution, the inevitable product of History rather than a specific creation of a very particular history. Bertrand Badie and Pierre Birnbaum here persuasively argue that the origin of the state is a social fact, arising out of the peculiar sociohistorical context of Western Europe. Drawing on historical materials and bringing sociological insights to bear on a field long abandoned to jurists and political scientists, the authors lay the foundations for a strikingly original theory of the birth and subsequent diffusion of the state. The book opens with a review of the principal evolutionary theories concerning the origin of th...

Humiliation in International Relations

  • Categories: Law

In international relations (IR), some states often deny the legal status of others, stigmatising their practices or even their culture. Such acts of deliberate humiliation at the diplomatic level are common occurrences in modern diplomacy. In the period following the breakup of the famous 'Concert of Europe', many kinds of club-based diplomacy have been tried, all falling short of anything like inclusive multilateralism. Examples of this effort include the G7, G8, G20 and even the P5. Such 'contact groups' are put forward as if they were actual ruling institutions, endowed with the power to exclude and marginalise. Today, the effect of such acts of humiliation is to reveal the international ...

Diplomacy of Connivance

Diplomacy of Connivance

The Fall of the Berlin Wall left an international system without a name. Behind these imprecisions is a profound continuity: the oligarchic stubborness of the states community, started in 1815 by a diplomatic entente that has never disappeared despite highs and lows. It is embodied today in the G8 and the G20, presented by the media as the new directors of the world, though they often find themselves powerless and at an impasse. What results is what Bertrand Badie terms connivance diplomacy: limited in its performances, defensive of its privileges, intermediary between competition and cooperation, it is mostly precluding in its practices. By raising various forms of protest it confuses the international game instead of ordering it. This approach to international relations is examined here through its history, its functions, and its failures, calling into question the sometimes obscure notion of an international system.

The Imported State

This book traces the rise of the modern state in post-Enlightenment Europe and its spread to the remainder of the world, especially colonial and postcolonial societies. It shows how non-Western cultures invented their own practices of the state, thereby transforming the original model.

This book presents the state of the art of international relations theory through an analysis of the work of twelve key contemporary thinkers; John Vincent, Kenneth Waltz, Robert O. Keohane, Robert Gilpin, Bertrand Badie, John Ruggie, Hayward Alker, Nicholas G. Onuf, Alexander Wendt, Jean Bethke Elshtain, R.B.J. Walker and James Der Derian. The authors aim to break with the usual procedure in the field which juxtaposes aspects of the work of contemporary theorists with others, presenting them as part of a desembodied school of thought or paradigm. A more individual focus can demonstrate instead, the well-rounded character of some of the leading oeuvres and can thus offer a more representative view of the discipline. This book is designed to cover the work of theorists whom students of international relations will read and sometimes stuggle with. The essays can be read either as introductions to the work of these theorists or as companions to it. Each chapter attempts to place the thinker in the landscape of the discipine, to identify how they go about studying International Relations, and to discuss what others can learn from them.

Décidément, le monde n’est plus ce qu’il était... Il y a dix ans encore horizon indépassable des relations internationales, la souveraineté peine à maintenir ses positions face à l’émergence des valeurs communes à l’humanité et à la globalisation de l’économie. A vrai dire, elle recule un peu partout : de vieux Etats-nations doivent en sacrifier une partie pour s’intégrer à de plus grands ensembles ; l’ingérence a de moins en moins besoin de se parer des oripeaux des grands principes et passe à l’occasion pour un devoir ; certains Etats ne parviennent plus à garantir l’immunité de leurs ressortissants, voire de leurs anciens dirigeants... Bref, l’autorit...

Depuis les Lumières, la domination politique exercée par l'Occident sur les " pays du Sud " s'accompagne _ quand elle ne la précède ou ne la prépare pas _ d'une domination culturelle plus forte encore. La décolonisation, loin d'avoir fourni aux sociétés du tiers monde le moyen de trouver une organisation qui corresponde à leurs traditions, a même fortement accentué ce phénomène. Derrière une rhétorique de rupture, les leaders du Sud se font les importateurs de notre droit, de notre modèle de développement, de notre forme de démocratie représentative (même s'ils l'accommodent à leur façon). Ces Princes, leurs entourages et leurs intellectuels pensent, agissent, construis...

We are told again and again that the world has become increasingly complex and indecipherable. However, this book reminds us that we are no longer alone in the world, that it is time to move away from the mental categories of the Cold War and stop treating all those who challenge our vision of the international order as guilty “deviants” or “Barbarians.” The author challenges the diplomacy of Western states, who want to continue to rule the world against history, and in particular that of France, which too often oscillates between arrogance, indecision, and ambiguity. The power play is stuck. The international order can no longer be regulated by a small club of oligarchs who exclude the weaker ones, ignore the demands of societies, and ignore the demands for justice that emerge from a new world where the actors are more numerous, more diverse and more restive to arbitrary disciplines. For this reason, this book also offers ways to think an international order that would be, if not fair, at least less unfair.
