About this item

This book develops a theoretical and empirical argumentabout the disintegration of security communities, and the subsequent breakdownof stable peace among nations, through a process of norm degeneration. It drawstogether two key bodies of contemporary IR literature – norms and securitycommunities – and brings their combined insights to bear on the empiricalphenomenon of disintegration.

The investigation of normative change in IR is becomingincreasingly popular. Most studies, however, focus on its progressiveconnotation. The possibility of a weakening or even disappearance of anestablished peaceful normative order, by contrast, tends to be often eitherneglected or implicitly assumed. NormativeChange and Security Community Disintegration: Undoing Peace advances thecontemporary body of research on the important role of norms and ideas byanalytically extending recent Constructivist arguments about international normdegeneration to the regional level and by applying them to a particular type ofregional order – a security community.
