Responsive Ethics or Disrupting Self-Centred Approaches to Ethics in International Relations

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Realist and liberal understandings of ethics as the dominant approaches to ethics in international relations are unable to respond efficiently to the call of the other in the age of war against terrorism as they revolve around the needs and the interests of the self. Such self-centred understandings of ethics cannot respond to the other ethically and respect the other in its otherness. Therefore, today, the questions like “why is it so difficult to situate and respond to a set of specific others- ethically, politically or theoretically?” or “what possibilities are there for concrete responses that do not merely or finally reduce otherness to a subset of the same?” take us to what I call responsive ethics which creates possibilities for responses that do not reduce the other to the same or that treats alterity as difference which cannot be subsumed into the same. Responsive ethics as such also disrupts the dominant identity politics which remains “unable to deal with the other as other; it continues to thematize differences among persons, groups, and discourses in terms of (the impossibility of their) sameness”. Also such an ethical understanding offers a way to understand specific differences and enact specific ethical commitments, without falling back on the totalizing gestures of a universalising, rule or norm-governed structure and creates a mode of response for this end.
