Research Methods for Studies in International Relations

To study international relations is to study social facts: trying to describe, interpret and compare these facts inevitably means that the researcher has to choose methods and tools with which to do this. Whilst there are numerous works which approach international relations from a theoretical standpoint, paradoxically there are far fewer which address the various ways to approach empirical research.

This book includes contributions from twenty or so researchers and teachers and suggests a wide range of useful data, resources, and methods for undertaking methodologically rigorous research on international relations. It contains critical reflections on how to construct and make use of databases, how to conduct interviews, how to map results, how to analyse speech and images, and how to use various quantitative methods.

A practical handbook for researchers, this book will also be valuable to a wider audience which is interested in studies of international relations and wonders quite properly how 'experts' reach their conclusions.

The Role of International Institutions

Do international institutions really contribute to building a lasting peace? If it is impossible to fight against the recommendations of international institutions, it will become difficult to reject them as a means of making peace.
