British Institutionalists, or the English School, 20 Years On

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article first identifies the nature and substance of the so-called English School of International Relations and outlines a distinct body of thought emanating from its central figures. It then examines in detail an unresolved tension between their strong West-centricity and their acknowledgement of the multicultural character of the contemporary world. A brief conclusion suggests a number of ways in which we may build on their works and transcend their parameters.
