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. Cox, S. Gill, Kees van der Pijl, Mark Rupert.
This study aims to investigate the decline of American hegemony as one of the most prominent crises of the modern world order, from a broader perspective that transcends narrow traditional interpretations. The paper assumes that the September 11 events in have launched the actual decline in American hegemony. The study investigates the decline in American hegemony through a longitudinal within-case analysis which focuses on the causal path of decline in hegemony in the case of the USA, since the events of September 11, , and tries to identify the causal mechanisms behind this decline. Following George and Bennet , the study uses process tracing to examine its research question. Process-tracing method seeks to identify the intervening causal process — causal chain or causal mechanisms or the steps in a causal process — that leads to the outcome of a particular case in a specific historical context Mahoney, ; Bennet and Elman,

This paper provides a conceptual and theoretical analysis of the concept of hegemony in the field of International Relations. Although the concept of hegemony is frequently employed in the literature, it is quite apparent that different meanings are attributed to it. This is not necessarily surprising because the field itself is divided into different theoretical perspectives that offer contrasting accounts of key concepts, including hegemony. The main section of the paper examines how different theoretical approaches in the field, such as realism, liberalism, constructivism, as well as neo-Gramscianism and the English School, comprehend the concept of hegemony. Based on a thorough review of the literature, I argue that there is a fundamental division between, on the one hand, hegemony as overwhelming power and, on the other hand, the exercise of some form of leadership. This distinction certainly characterises the different accounts of hegemony provided by realism and liberalism. Although the concept of hegemony is frequently employed in IR literature, it is quite apparent that different meanings are attributed to it.

Gramsci, Political Economy, and International Relations Theory
In a world of rising powers, declining superpowers, economic breakdown and crises of democracy, theories of hegemony have become fashionable, as scholars ponder the nature of global politics in the 21 st century. Accordingly, Worth sets out to provide some clarity on the issue by examining how hegemony has evolved in historical and theoretical terms, so that it can better inform analysis in the current context. This is certainly a laudable goal, and one which the book largely lives up to, though not without some problems along the way.
Neo-Gramscianism applies a critical theory approach to the study of international relations IR and the global political economy GPE that explores the interface of ideas, institutions and material capabilities as they shape the specific contours of the state formation. The theory is heavily influenced by the writings of Antonio Gramsci. In this sense, the neo-Gramscian approach breaks the decades-old stalemate between the realist schools of thought and the liberal theories by historicizing the very theoretical foundations of the two streams as part of a particular world order and finding the interlocking relationship between agency and structure. The beginning of the neo-Gramscian perspective can be traced to York University professor emeritus Robert W. In his article, Cox demands a critical study of IR as opposed to the usual "problem-solving" theories, which do not interrogate the origin, nature and development of historical structures, but accept for example that states and the supposedly "anarchic" relationships between them as Kantian Dinge an sich.
