Abstract

This special issue explores new conceptual openings and novel methodologies in the study of emotions in International Relations (IR) by discussing new empirical cases where the ‘affective’ turn is yet to happen. In particular, the contributions investigate the following research questions:
1. How emotions work and what emotions do in the conventional research areas in the discipline such as security, strategy, conflict, and diplomacy?
2. How can emotions be studied in global politics and how can new methodologies interact with existing ones particularly in political psychology?
3. What political and ethical implications can be observed when the ‘affective turn’ is put into practice in global politics?
