Abstract

This paper develops an English School (ES) framework for analysing the emergence of new primary institutions in global international society (GIS), and applies this to the case of environmental stewardship. The paper traces the impact that global environmentalism has had on the normative order of GIS, examines the creation of secondary institutions around this norm and identifies the ways in which these developments have become embedded in the constitution and behaviour of states. It assesses the ways in which environmental stewardship has interacted with the other primary institutions that compose GIS, changing some of the understandings and practices associated with them. The conclusions argue that environmental stewardship is likely to be a durable institution of GIS, and that it might be a harbinger of a more functional turn in its priorities.
