Welcome to IPS
International Political Sociology (IPS), responds to the need for more productive collaboration among political sociologists, international relations specialists and sociopolitical theorists. It is especially concerned with challenges arising from contemporary transformations of social, political, and global orders given the statist forms of traditional sociologies and the marginalization of social processes in many approaches to international relations. IPS is committed to theoretical innovation, new modes of empirical research and the geographical and cultural diversification of research beyond the usual circuits of European and North-American scholarship.
To specify some of the interests of the IPS board, we have set up a forum in which new topics can be suggested and in addition we currently welcome both theoretical and empirical explorations of the following issues: IR Theory and the sociology of the discipline; Major works of various sociologists and their impact on the study of IR; Critical discussion of the notions of frontiers, boundaries and limit; International Political Anthropology of mobility, globalization and confinement zone; Prevention and precaution: securization/desecurization, emancipation, resistance and freedom practices; Implementation of international law in a comparative perspective and impact of international law on the claims of sovereignty or primacy of national interests; Religion and secularism: the vision of the Enlightenment and the post-colonial discussion and religious belief. These themes are not exclusive and other possibilities include works on global patterns of urbanization, international policing, military sociology, political opinion and communication, the sociology of culture, the sociology of political movements, and the transnational effects of the reshaping of national, cultural and religious identities.
