The theme of the International Studies Association’s 2015 Annual Convention was‘Global International Relations and Regional Worlds’, a theme that highlighted what Acharya and Buzan (2017) refer to as‘the American and Western dominance of[International Relations]’. Acharya and Buzan’s(2017) contention is that whereas International Relations (IR) continues to refer to Western theoretical approaches and history, the world is moving into a phase in which Western dominance is on the decline,suggesting that it is time for IR to incorporate not just non-Western ideas and histories,but also a more holistic, global understanding of IR. At the same time, Acharya and Buzan (2017) argue that their advocacy of a Global IR accepts the mainstream theories of IR, but challenges them‘to accept the ideas, experiences and insights from the non-Western world’and‘expects them to give due recognition to the places, roles, and contributions of non-Western peoples and societies’.
