The Struggle for Recognition in International Relations

Abstract: How can established powers manage the peaceful rise of new great powers? With The Struggle for Recognition in International Relations, the author offers a new answer to this perennial question in international relations, arguing that power transitions are principally social phenomena whereby rising powers struggle to obtain recognition of their identity as a great power. At the center of great power identity formation is the acquisition of particular symbolic capabilities—such as battlesheips, aircraft carrier… Show more

“…Insecurities and frustrations encoded within fragile collective discourses of state identity -highlighted in the constructivist literature on ontological security -are another (Gustafsson and Krickel-Choi, 2020;Kinnvall and Mitzen, 2020;Zarakol, 2010). Similarly, diffuse status concerns -also the focus of an extensive literature in International Relations (Murray, 2019;Paul et al, 2014) -may further give rise to significant anxieties.…”

“…While the relevant literature is too vast to do justice here (Tammen et al, 2021), the simple point is that like spirals, power shifts do not occur in a discursive or emotional vacuum. Shifting power relations can be unsettling, giving rise to emotionally salient discourses of self-doubt, jealousy, or anxiety (Hagström, 2021;Onea, 2014) in the declining power, and 'unhappiness and resentment' (Paul, 2017) in the rising one, particularly where it does not feel sufficiently accommodated or recognised (Murray, 2019) -all affective climates highly conducive to inflationary projection. Moreover, states facing the uncertainties of shifting balances of power may particularly obsess over their reputation, prestige, or status (Larson and Shevchenko, 2010), becoming increasingly likely to engage in extrapolation and abstraction.…”

“…Sin embargo, este proceso implica una gran incertidumbre para el Estado en cuestión -siempre existe el riesgo de no obtener este reconocimiento tan necesario-, más aún en un contexto de anarquía sistémica. Una forma de tratar de superar esta inseguridad social, según Murray (2019), consiste en realizar prácticas de reconocimiento, es decir gestos asociados con la identidad de una gran potencia, no exentos de riesgo y que pueden ser agrupados en tres grupos. Primero, existe la posibilidad de hablar con la voz de una gran potencia para así obtener respeto, al asumir responsabilidades de gestión, reclamar un asiento en la mesa o hasta instigar crisis internacionales para llamar la atención de las grandes potencias.…”

“…El presente artículo se propone problematizar esta afirmación al postular que la categoría del revisionismo no constituye una proyección internacional unidimensional, ni tampoco objetiva. Por otro lado, siguiendo a Murray (2019), el revisionismo, además de emerger al interior de un Estado, también se construye a través de las interacciones sociales con otros Estados, como efecto de su pugna por el reconocimiento. Luego de una revisión de la literatura sobre dicho concepto y la ubicación de la teoría de Murray en ella, el presente artículo indaga en los motivos y las estrategias de Rusia en el orden pos Guerra Fría, así como las capacidades que sustentan su política exterior.…”
