Changing plans, getting finished

Last week, I decided to change my term paper intro a theoretical one. So I just compare the norm-based constructivist approach to International Relations with a poststructuralist one. There, I concentrate on Foucaults work on power-knowledge and governmentality.

I want to finish the paper this week. The comparison is still to be done and I want to outline some key problems regarding international organizations to narrow everything down to the question of how to analyse international organizations form a post-positivist view.

There is a very good, short text by Foucault that I highly recommend. It’s in a book by Dreyfus and Rabinow called “Foucault: Beyond Structuralism And Hermeneutics”; and on power-relations, governmentality etc. It’s a quite good source for very significant quotes.
