Content

In the post-Cold War political environment, students, scholars, and policy-makers have been forced to rethink the content and theoretical conceptualisations of the discipline of international relations. To a considerable degree international relations scholarship has focused on the political and security dimensions of the Cold War. This preoccupation with what was a brief and unusual period in global history masked the importance of economic and resource-based issues. These issues, along with human rights and the environment, now need to be more fully integrated into the study of world politics if we are to understand and adequately respond to the challenges created by the processes of globalisation and fragmentation.
