Bourdieu Goes Global

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



Abstract:

This article takes a fresh look at current debates in International Relations ~IR! in the light of Pierre Bourdieu’s sociology.We argue that Bourdieu’s social theory could help build bridges between conventional and critical approaches in IR. More specifically, we identify six contributions that a Bourdieusian approach can make. At the meta-theoretical level, such an approach would be characterized by a reflexive epistemology, a relational ontology and a theory of practice – three dimensions that address key theoretical debates in IR. On a more applied level, Bourdieu’s sociology enables us to study world politics as a complex of “embedded social fields”, to open up the state’s field of power, and to factor in the symbolic nature of power.
