Violence as a Dynamic of World Politics: What is Great about Great Powers?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The paper will examine the epistemological and ontological underpinnings of the ISA 2005 conference theme and argue how the theme adopts a restrictive notion of 'Power'. It will critique the notion of power as a tangible entity to be possessed and make a case for shifting the focus from how power is possessed and exercised to how power is experienced, appropriated and resisted. Great Powers not only have to deal with great violence but they great in dealing with violence. What makes them 'great' is their ability to frame the debate where their exercise of violence is seen as maintaining stability and order and hence justified. Through the empirical study of UK, USA, China, and India - (past, present and potential) candidates for Great Power status, the paper will highlight the silent and structural violence underlining their 'greatness'.
