Formatted abstract
Anarchism has long been an under-represented and mis-represented approach to world politics. This is despite the fact that a number of excellent articles in the mid-70s brought anarchism to IR theory and Peace Studies.2 As an inherently critical and normative theory, anarchism’s radical insights into social and economic power and its damming condemnation of all authoritarian structures, particularly the state, are of great significance to those of us grappling with the ‘political’ dimensions of the international sphere. It is not surprising therefore that recently there has been a veritable explosion of academic and social interest in anarchism that constitutes nothing less than a revival of this tradition. It is in the spirit of this revival that we are pleased to present this special forum on ‘Anarchism and IR’ in Global Discourse.
