" A POLITICO-SOCIOLOGY OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS? WHAT ELSE? "
The concept of "international" has been eroded in the process of transnationalization and what has been realized of globalization at least in the last two decades of world politics. On the other side of the coin especially in core societies, an internationalization of social processes has emerged as a product of this phenomenon. Consequentially just as sundry international factors have begun to influence domestic politics through various and diverse interest groups, the same is true for decisions made by individual governments. In the scope of this political transformation, classic epistemological tools and concepts are not likely to suffice in understanding and interpreting the world phenomena. If the world is going through a process where social forces and determinants incrementally tend to resemble those of a holonomic "global" society, world politics can be better understood with the application of theories, methods and academic praxis employed by social science and social theory.
