We make these divisions, Cox wrote, in order to analyse the world and thus to produce practical knowledge of that world. It is not a stretch to suggest that the real social world of International Relations scholarship might also be approached as worthy of analysis and theory. Indeed, reflection on International Relations as theory appears in the field as part of the necessary and practical division of the complexity of the social and political world. Thus theory itself has long and often been treated as an object for theoretical reflection in International Relations.

This article provides an overview of the most important elements of the critical theory of international relations. Any inquiry into critical international relations theory has to distinguish at least two central components. The first is the epistemological and methodological, what it says about theory; and the second is the normative and substantive, what it says about the world. The article demonstrates this by examining, first, the nature of the critical theory theoretical project and how it differs from and challenges mainstream conceptions of international relations; and secondly, the contributions that have been made by critical international relations theory so far. It begins with a brief discussion of the origins of critical theory and critical international relations theory before examining the major claims and achievements. Keywords: critical theory , international relations , Frankfurt School , study , mainstream conceptions.

This article studies the thoughts of Robert W. Cox regarding civilization. In s, Cox proposed about political conflict in Quebec based on Canadian civilization, including the issues on race, language, and religion. He proposed the concept of civilization after cold war because he disagreed with Samuel Huntington and Francis Fukuyama for putting an emphasis on political conflicts over structural economic and social relations. Arguably, the civilization conflict was formed since the Westphalian inter-state system and established by the Western nations. Thus, American Hegemony aiming to dominate of a one civilization in the 21 st Century is still clashed with Chinese civilization in Global Capitalism and Islamic civilization to counter the Western civilization. By using terrorism, that might be called counter-hegemony.

Based on the historical method, methods of analysis and comparison of theories, the ideological origins, genesis and course of development of neo-Gramscianism, as one of the theoretical approaches in the study of international relations, are revealed. The ontological and epistemological differences between neo-Gramscianism and the dominant research directions in the study of international relations — political realism and liberal idealism are highlighted. The main attention is paid to the contribution to the development of neo-Gramscianism by such leading theoreticians as R.
The financial crisis stands out for being a crisis that occurred not in developing countries, but in the core capitalist countries, thus assuming greater proportions and with broader ramifications. In this context, the G20 gained new impetus, and, as a result, several studies have sought to understand not only the crisis but the role of the reformed G20 in the process of resolving it. Despite the relevance of this literature, little attention has been paid to the G20 outreach process, in particular to the growing dialogue established between the G20 and B20 Business Summit 20 , a group that represents the business sector in these exchanges. This article seeks to contribute to a better understanding of the engagement of business elites with the actions taken by the G20 to deal with the financial crisis — that is, the role of social forces in the re construction of contemporary international political economy. It seeks, in a concise and exploratory way, to sketch the relationship between the B20 and G20 in the period between and , in order to better understand processes associated with the transnationalization of the capitalist class.

Она не произнесла ни слова. За десять лет их знакомства Стратмор выходил из себя всего несколько раз, и этого ни разу не произошло в разговоре с. В течение нескольких секунд ни он, ни она не произнесли ни слова. Наконец Стратмор откинулся на спинку стула, и Сьюзан поняла, что он постепенно успокаивается. Когда он наконец заговорил, голос его звучал подчеркнуто ровно, хотя было очевидно, что это давалось ему нелегко. - Увы, - тихо сказал Стратмор, - оказалось, что директор в Южной Америке на встрече с президентом Колумбии. Поскольку, находясь там, он ничего не смог бы предпринять, у меня оставалось два варианта: попросить его прервать визит и вернуться в Вашингтон или попытаться разрешить эту ситуацию самому.
- Дэвид. В этот момент в нескольких метрах под помещением шифровалки Стратмор сошел с лестницы на площадку. Сегодняшний день стал для него днем сплошных фиаско.
