Abstract

This book argues that our current understanding of globalization makes it impossible to grasp some crucial changes in world politics. Drawing on both Foucault and Waltz, Constructing a Global Polity seeks to reframe the debate about global politics by redefining the term ‘polity’ as a new model of political structure. If there is one important thing to be learned from this read, it is that IR needs more and not less grand theorizing in order to make sense of an ever-changing world, concludes Ali Diskaya.
