Ontological Security in International Relations Self-Identity and the IR State

Ontological Security in International Relations: Self-Identity and the IR State (New International Relations) by Brent J. Steele
English | 2008-03-19 | ISBN: 0415772761 | 230 pages | PDF | 1,7 mb






The central assertion of this book is that states pursue social actions to serve self-identity needs, even when these actions compromise their physical existence. Three forms of social action, sometimes referred to as 'motives' of state behaviour (moral, humanitarian, and honour-driven) are analyzed here through an ontological security approach.

Brent J. Steele develops an account of social action which interprets these behaviours as fulfilling a nation-state's drive to secure self-identity through time. The anxiety which consumes all social agents motivates them to secure their sense of being, and thus he posits that transformational possibilities exist in the 'Self' of a nation-state. The volume consequently both challenges and complements realist, liberal, constructivist and post-structural accounts to international politics.
