Decentering International Relations seeks to actively confront, resist, and rewrite IR, a discipline which is deeply centered in the North/West and which privileges certain perspectives, pedagogies, and practices. Is it possible to break the chain of signifiers that always leads IR studies back to the United States and its European allies? Through engagement with a variety of theories and in conversation with scholars, activists, and students, Meghana Nayak and Eric Selbin invite the reader to participate in an accessible yet provocative experiment to decenter the North/West when we learn, study, and do IR. In particular, they examine how the pressing issues of human rights, globalization, peace and security, and indigeneity are simultaneously normative inventions meant to sustain particular power structures and sites for insurgent and subversive attempts to live IR at the margins. Decentering International Relations is a remarkable and provocative re-envisioning of a globally important subject.
