International Ethics, once considered along the margins of International Relations (IR), has emerged as one of the most eclectic and interdisciplinary research fields today. Yet the same diversity that enriches the field of Ethics in International Affairs also makes it a difficult one to characterize. Is it, or should it only be, the social-scientific pursuit of explaining and understanding how ethics influences the behaviors of actors in international relations? Or, should it be a field characterized by what the world should be like, based on philosophical and policy-based arguments? Or, as this handbook suggests, can it be both, and further involve the field in an appraisal of how those two conceptions of Ethics in International Relations are inherently linked?
Seeking to both provide an overview of the field and drive debates forward, this Handbook is framed by an opening chapter providing a concise and accessible overview of the complex history of the field of Ethics in IR. 35 contributions from scholars teaching and researching in the field are structured around 9 key thematic sections:
Drawing together a diverse range of scholars, The Routledge Handbook of Ethics and International Relations provides a cutting edge overview of the field by bringing together these eclectic, albeit dynamic, themes and topics, it will be an essential resource for students and scholars alike.
