Abstract

Scholars and practitioners spawn neologisms to capture presumably new phenomena, offer new insights into a recurring problem, or signify a structural dynamic or process neglected or misunderstood. Sometimes a term loses its utility over time and falls into disrepute. Other times, vocabulary like ‘globalisation’ or ‘peacekeeping’ find residence within the international relations lexicon in ways that renovate policy and theoretical analyses.
