A Practice of Ethics for Global Politics: Ethical by Jack L. Amoureux

By Jack L. Amoureux

What form of ethics in global politics is feasible if there is not any starting place for ethical wisdom or worldwide fact is at the very least complicated and contingent? in addition, how can an ethics grapple with distinction, a continual and confounding characteristic for worldwide politics? This booklet responds to the decision for a daring and artistic method of ethics that avoids assuming or intending to universality, and as a substitute prioritizes distinction, complexity and uncertainty by way of turning to reflexivity, now not as process or technique, yet as a convention of ethics for politics.

This perform, ‘ethical reflexivity’, deals contributors, enterprises and groups instruments to acknowledge, interrogate and in all likelihood swap the tales they inform approximately politics—about constraints, notions of accountability and visions of desirability. the advantages and boundaries of moral reflexivity are investigated by way of the writer, who engages writing on critique, rhetoric, impact and relationality, and thoroughly considers dominant and substitute framings of adverse matters in diplomacy (IR)—the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, and the united states guidelines of ‘enhanced interrogation’ and drone moves. This path-breaking examine provokes new chances for organisation and motion and contributes to a transforming into literature in IR on reflexivity by way of uniquely elaborating its promise as an ethics for politics, and by means of drawing on thinkers much less used in discussions of reflexivity corresponding to Hannah Arendt, Michel Foucault and Aristotle.

This publication will entice students and upper-level graduates in numerous sub-fields of IR, together with international/global ethics, IR idea, international governance, foreign firms, non-governmental companies, overseas coverage research and US overseas policy.
