Abstract

By its own denomination – international political sociology 2 – an emerging field of study at the centre of this Routledge handbook is an invitation to engage independently and in their connections and tensions the three terms composing it (Bigo and Walker 2007a, b; Huysmans and Nogueira 2012; Bigo 2014). This invitation is also one to problematize these terms as they originate in specific disciplines and geo-cultural epistemologies (Tickner and 2009) and how their connections should not result in closing off venues for research and engagement but, on the contrary, open them up. This handbook therefore attempts to provide to a wide and diverse readership a sense of the lively and rich research dynamics that are currently constituting international political sociology as a field of study that needs to be read in the plural.
