This is a community for the debate and discussion of international relations theory and affairs. Topics include the neorealist versus neoliberal debate, the validity of the Third Way debate, and general discourses of the discipline of International Relations.
There are only three guidelines we wish to follow in this community, and they are...
...no flaming. This will not be tolerated by the moderator, hapan605, and will lead to a request to leave the community.
...educated and respectful discourse. Cite legitimate sources (i.e. American Political Science Review, International Organization, International Studies Quarterly) and bring in relevent, concrete arguments. Despite naivete or extreme cynacism of some posts, ignore these and focus on the material being presented.
...please introduce yourself before you enter the community in your first post. Tell us your interests, your background, and any other information you may think pertinent to the community as a whole.
Other than that, welcome to the community for the political junkies and international relations whores of Livejournal.
