Summary

Democratizing International Relations offers a controversial answer to hegemonic debates in IR. By allowing space to peripheral and marginal experiences of power and social relations, and utilising postcolonial theories, Lily Ling theorizes that we may develop a richer and pluralistic approach towards sustainable and democratic governance. The book employs alternative modes of writing, such as folk tales and popular culture analysis to present the story of world politics in an unusual way, triggering debates and critquing existing models of liberal internationalism. 'Culture' is therefore defined as anything that constitutes different political worlds. The deconstruction of IR as a singular unifying school of thought through the lens of culture shows a unique perspective on the forces that drive and shape world politics. Democratizing International Relations bridges the humanities and social sciences, and will be of interest to IR and cultural theory scholars and students.
