This booklet responds to the decision for a daring and artistic method of ethics that avoids assuming or meaning to universality, and as an alternative prioritizes distinction, complexity and uncertainty via turning to reflexivity, no longer as approach or technique, yet as a convention of ethics for politics.

This perform, ‘ethical reflexivity’, deals contributors, businesses and groups instruments to acknowledge, interrogate and possibly switch the tales they inform approximately politics—about constraints, notions of accountability and visions of desirability. the advantages and bounds of moral reflexivity are investigated by means of the writer, who engages writing on critique, rhetoric, impact and relationality, and thoroughly considers dominant and replacement framings of inauspicious matters in diplomacy (IR)—the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, and the united states guidelines of ‘enhanced interrogation’ and drone moves. This path-breaking examine provokes new probabilities for business enterprise and motion and contributes to a growing to be literature in IR on reflexivity by way of uniquely elaborating its promise as an ethics for politics, and through drawing on thinkers much less used in discussions of reflexivity comparable to Hannah Arendt, Michel Foucault and Aristotle.

This ebook will entice students and upper-level graduates in different sub-fields of IR, together with international/global ethics, IR conception, worldwide governance, foreign corporations, non-governmental firms, overseas coverage research and US international policy.
