  • The Study of Leaders in Nuclear Proliferation and How to Reinvigorate It
    • Authors: Schneider J.
      Pages: 1 - 25
      Abstract: AbstractFor both nuclear proliferation and nuclear weapons restraint, the individual characteristics of political leaders—their beliefs, experiences, and identities—frequently play an important role. And yet, theories of proliferation have so far paid insufficient attention to the influence of leaders, focusing instead on international and domestic structures that allegedly determine states’ nuclear choices. This article makes two contributions. First, by showing that important cases of both nuclear weapons pursuit and nuclear reversal cannot be fully understood when neglecting the role of the involved leaders, the article makes a systematic case for an increased analytical emphasis on political leaders in theories of proliferation. Second, the article offers practical advice for scholars seeking to develop proliferation theories that take leader characteristics into account. Specifically, it shows how scholars can preempt endogeneity concerns. Moreover, the article details how changing the dependent variable—from state behavior to leader attitude—could help scholars overcome the aggregation problem in the study of proliferation dynamics.

  • The “Local Turn” in Transitional Justice: Curb the Enthusiasm
    • Authors: Kochanski A.
      Pages: 26 - 50
      Abstract: AbstractRecent years have witnessed a “local turn” in the study and practice of peacebuilding, international development, and transitional justice (TJ) that has emphasized the importance of local-level knowledge and initiatives. The proliferation of customary, locally rooted TJ processes in states that have experienced violence is a part of this trend. While most studies have taken a sanguine view of the cultural and practical advantages of local TJ, this article contends that existing scholarship neglects the influence of asymmetric power relations and political motivations that have the potential to distort these processes. This article invites a more nuanced discussion of local TJ, rooted in systematic and comparative scholarship of how these processes actually operate on the ground, in order to improve understandings of their promise and perils.

  • Things We Lost in the Fire: How Different Types of Contestation Affect the
           Robustness of International Norms
    • Authors: Deitelhoff N; Zimmermann L.
      Pages: 51 - 76
      Abstract: AbstractContestation of international norms has become the new focus of IR norm research. The optimism of the 1990s that fundamental liberal norms would diffuse globally has remained unfulfilled in recent years—even human rights norms have witnessed strong contestation. Time and again, controversy has erupted regarding international norms such as the ban on torture or the Responsibility to Protect. Meanwhile, we know little about how such controversy affects the robustness of norms—whether it contributes to their weakening or to their strengthening. Existing research offers two competing hypotheses: One branch of norm research often conceptualizes contestation as a sign of norm weakening. By contrast, another branch assigns contestation a normative power of its own, which strengthens norms. It does not specify the limits of such normative power, however. In this article, we argue that contestation per se is a poor predictor of norm robustness. The type of contestation a norm faces matters. Contestation can either (1) address the dimension of application of a norm or (2) examine its validity by questioning the righteousness of the claims a norm makes. The article draws on two illustrative case studies of extensively contested norms, the Responsibility to Protect and the ban on commercial whaling. We argue that widespread contestation of the very validity of a norm is likely to lead to a loss of norm robustness. Applicatory contestation, by contrast, can—under specific circumstances—even strengthen it.

  • Mapping the Repertoire of Emotions and Their Communicative Functions in
           Face-to-face Diplomacy
    • Authors: Wong S.
      Pages: 77 - 97
      Abstract: AbstractLeaders who wish to resolve their disputes through face-to-face negotiations often find themselves in various relational problems. An invitation to talk might be sincere, but it can also be a scheme to exploit one’s counterpart; a claim of value and threat to walk out unless certain demands are met might be serious, but it can also be a bluff; a claim that no further concessions is possible might be heartfelt, but it can also be an attempt to exaggerate one’s “Reservation Price”; and an urge to commit to an agreement might be genuine, but it can also be a ploy to trick a counterpart into a deal one does not intend to honor. What, then, are the interpersonal mechanisms that enable leaders to credibly communicate their intentions' In this article, I identify the diverse repertoire of emotions that leaders exchange when they interact up close, explain the different relational problems they overcome, and, as such, shed light on how their expressions enable leaders with otherwise conflicting interests to proceed through the different stages of a negotiation. Empirically, I present a number of episodes of face-to-face diplomacy from recent history. I also discuss a number of promising topics for future research.

  • The Quest for Order in Anarchical Societies: Anthropological
           Investigations
    • Authors: Terradas N.
      Pages: 98 - 121
      Abstract: AbstractThere is a fundamental link between political anthropology and Hedley Bull's classical study of international order, which has been persistently neglected by contemporary students of international society. While traditional assessments of Bull's work normally focus on the influences of political philosophy, international law, and history, a discussion of Bull's reliance on anthropological studies of anarchical societies is also essential for a more comprehensive understanding of his conceptualization of order and the sources, number, and functions of the “fundamental institutions” of international society. After showing how exactly political anthropology has underpinned Bull's work, the article explores its relevance for contemporary English school theorization. In particular, it offers a critique of the new institutionalists’ claims on the issue of sources, numbers, and functions of Bull's fundamental institutions. An updating of Bull's original “anthropological investigations” suggests a reconsideration of “Trade” as a sixth fundamental institution, a closer attention to “binding” and “dividing” forces in international society, as well as a reframing of the domestic analogy in IR.

  • Positive Peace, Paradox, and Contested Liberalisms
    • Authors: Sharp D.
      Pages: 122 - 139
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay revisits Johan Galtung's early articulation of the concept of “positive peace” in order to re-surface its fundamental radicalism, together with some of its inherent tensions, paradoxes, and politics. It then explores the linkages and contested relationship between the concept of positive peace and the prevailing peacebuilding paradigm of our day: liberal peacebuilding. I argue that our understanding of debates about both positive peace and liberal peacebuilding can be clarified when viewed through the lens of contested liberalisms and conflicting liberal values. Such debates often appear to reflect more of a political and ideological debate within the larger liberal tradition itself and between competing liberal values than some kind of choice between liberal, illiberal, or “postliberal” peacebuilding. Advancing peace theory and praxis at this stage would benefit from an increasing willingness to more openly confront some of these choices and a greater degree of transparency about our liberal commitments, including in the hard, “real world” cases where tensions seem irreconcilable.

  • Contesting Frames and (De)Securitizing Schemas: Bridging the Copenhagen
           School's Framework and Framing Theory
    • Authors: Mortensgaard L.

      Abstract: AbstractThis article bridges the Copenhagen school's (CS) framework and framing theory. Framing theory focuses on how a text frames its topic and is often applied to media sources. This is important because the media often is our sole source of learning about events and issues in the world. This article argues that bridging the CS framework and framing theory allow us to understand how the media conveys these issues and with what consequences. Through the bridging, the article makes two contributions to the existing debates on securitization. First, it introduces the concept of a (de)securitizing schema as an innovative way to analyze the media as a (de)securitizing actor. Second, the article uses the concept of a (de)securitizing schema to understand how contesting frames exist in the media. Empirically, the article analyzes two Danish case studies surrounding the migration movements on the European Union's southern border by undertaking a discourse analysis of four Danish newspapers. This empirical analysis shows how the media can be a securitizing actor, capable of employing multiple contesting frames—sometimes within a single news item. In addition, the Danish case illustrates how securitizing and desecuritizing frames evolve over time and from one case study to the next. The article concludes by reflecting on what the concept of securitizing schemas and contesting frames may imply for securitization studies and other case studies.
