This book critically examines the discipline of International Relations in Europe. It presents the state of the art, focusing particularly on international relations theory and theoretical debates in Western and Central European countries. The authors seek to strengthen knowledge about different ways of cultivating the discipline; to intensify pan-European communication concerning IR theory; to contribute to improving the quality of theorising; and finally to consider future directions for the discipline in Europe. The main issues addressed include the historical development of the discipline; factors driving IR theorizing; the institutional and cultural context of theorizing; "homegrown" theory-building vs. theory import; patterns of traditional and new discourse; and the diversity of disciplinary traditions. This will be a key volume for everyone interested in International Relations and IR theory, particularly those with an interest in Europe.
