Abstract:

I explain the role of identity in how states perceive and judge the use of force in world politics. I show that prevailing rationalist theories of signaling miss the ideational lenses mediating how interventions are interpreted and how interveners are judged. However, constructivists and some English school proponents are too systemic in presuming common norms as common bases of judgment. I develop a theory suggesting state identity explains evaluations and judgments regarding the use of force. Building from Buzan's conception of international society as diversified, I argue that different state identities--defined by the self-images, images of the intervener, and images of the target--filter assessments of US interventionist behavior in ways not captured by realists or systemic constructivists. I discuss the implications of this study to American attempts at projecting the image of benign hegemon in the post-Cold War unipolar world.
