Theory Rears It’s Ugly Head

To all those former professors who bemoan the lack of IR theory here, and for whom the eclectic and practical content of this blog is a continuing affront to the good name of the International Relations discipline, I offer this small tidbit from a fellow blogger and self-confessed IR geek who revels in theory:

 I’m working on a theory that expands how hegemony is attained within the institutional heirarchy of the international order.

I’m not even sure what that means.  I understand the words (didn’t even have to look them up), but I can begin to imagine what the theoretical (much less the practical) implications of that statement are.

Then again, I am jealous that he gets to attend lectures at Chatham House every once in a while.
