Discussion Two

These sources receive significant attention in both Discussion Two and in our papers:

Ikenberry, G. JohnAfter Victory: Institutions, Strategic Restraint, and the Rebuilding of Order after Major Wars. Princeton: Princeton UP, 2001

Discusses the way that the international order is reconstructed following major upheavals. Ikenberry argues that the difference between domestic and international order is one of degree rather than type, and that a constitutional system, like the one that has evolved since 1945, is a viable way of ordering the world.

Krasner, Stephen D. “Westphalia and All That.” In Ideas & Foreign Policy: Beliefs, Institutions, and Political Change, edited by Judith Goldstein and Robert O. Keohane, 235- 64. Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1993.

Puts forward the idea of sovereignty by issue area. Krasner argues that the Peace of Westphalia was not a pivotal change in the way that the world was organized, but was only later characterized as such. He argues that state sovereignty existed in some forms before Westphalia, and also continued to not exist in some forms afterwards. Sovereignty can also be defined in terms of issue areas (taxation, foreign policy, religion, military, etc.), which may be controlled by different actors.

Keohane, Robert O. After Hegemony: Cooperation and Discord in the World Political Economy. Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1984. Ch 4.

Looks at the way international regimes facilitate cooperation between states. Keohane shows the ways in which states are able to coordinate for mutual benefit through policy adjustment aimed at aligning interests and goals, and sees cooperation as happening only under conflict or the threat of conflict.

James G. March and Johan P. Olsen, “The Institutional Dynamics of International Political Orders,”International Organization 52, 4 (Autumn 1998).

Discusses the logic of consequence vs. the logic of appropriateness for determining how states choose to act.
