The politics of otherness: Illustrating the identity/alterity nexus and othering in IR. Buitrago, S. R. d. & Resende, E. In Routledge Handbook of Critical International Relations. Routledge, 2019. Num Pages: 15
abstract   bibtex   
Current and past conflicts seem to evidence that othering is negatively biased, with both a differentiation and a distancing from the other. Still, perceiving the other as different but equal would be a worthwhile effort to pursue, as this can enable tolerance of difference, and balanced relations. We thus have a puzzle that needs unpacking: how does the process of othering, and its factors and dynamics, influence and constitute conflict. The aim of this chapter is to survey the implications of the identity/alterity nexus as related to processes of othering for explaining and understanding conflict and violence in global politics.
