The Question of Culture

The Question of Culture

(p.209) 12 The Question of Culture
International Society and its Critics

Jacinta O'Hagan

Oxford University Press

Considers the relationship between culture and international society, a question that subtly permeates the work of the English School of International Relations. Begins by examining ideas among the first wave of English School authors about the role of culture in the formation of international society. Next, it considers assumptions about the relationship between culture and international society to be found among contemporary English School authors. The key issues addressed here include the role that culture plays in establishing order and stability in international society, the role that key institutions of international society play in managing cultural diversity (cultural pluralism), and the relationship between culture and perceptions of equity and justice within international society. Then seeks to draw together discussion of these three cultural issue areas to reflect on their implications for the functioning and cohesion of contemporary international society.

Keywords:   cohesion, cultural diversity, cultural pluralism, culture, English School of International Relations, equity, functioning, institutions, international relations, international society, justice, order, stability
