Special Issue 'Machiavelli and International Relations: Critical Reassessments' (Volume 53, Issue 4, July 2016)

The Special Issue aims to re-explore the key issues in Machiavelli’s international thought, and dig in depth into some of its most fundamental aspects: the relevance of human nature in determining political conflict; the influence of his ideas on the Realist tradition; the use of force and the morality dilemma; the importance of laws in the foundation of states and their limitations; the central role played by charisma and chance in influencing foreign policy; the impact of domestic political structures on international politics. As demonstrated by the contributors, interrogating Machiavelli’s thought has a significant potential for both IR theory and the analysis of specific issues in contemporary international relations.
The article Negotiating the lines between war and politics: Machiavelli’s gendering of war and peace by Kimberly Hutchins is free to access online for a limited time.

Special Issue: Responsibility to Protect and Humanity (Volume 53, Issue 1, January 2016)

2015 marked the tenth anniversary of the World Summit Outcome which saw over 150 heads of state and government unanimously endorse the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP). International Politics is proud to present a Special Issue guest edited by Adrian Gallagher and Garrett W. Brown celebrating this historic milestone. The Special Issue brings together contributions exploring the relationship between the RtoP and humanity.
The Foreword by Ken Booth and The politics of global humanitarianism: The responsibility to protect before and after Libya by Michael Doyle are free to access online.

Taking as its point of departure the simple but essential notion that no one approach has all the answers, it aims to provide a global forum for a rapidly expanding community of scholars from across the range of academic disciplines.
