Transcript of World Politics Lecture 2 IR, WP, and Globalization
World Politics Lecture 2
To Be A Scholar
Consider new ideas and perspectives
Challenge theories critically and analytically
Argue cogently and compellingly
Avoid ideological extremes
What is a Theory?
Theory: “a kind of simplifying device that allows you to decide which facts matter and which do not” (Baylis, Smith, Owens)
Tied to notion of “exclusionary principles”
A lens, a framework, a perspective, a set of assumptions, a worldview
Interactions BETWEEN and AMONG states
Trade, diplomacy, conflict
A state-centered world
Sovereignty: “there is no actor above the state that can compel it to act in specific ways” (Baylis, Smith, Owens)
External v. Internal legitimacy
Issues that play out on the world stage
Role of non-state actors
Links back to international relations
Honestly? A pretty meaningless term
Supranationality (and subnationalism)
Hyperglobalists v. Skeptics
