Sample text

Language is no longer investigated as a closed, internally structured ‘text’ (as it is still often taught in school curricula), but instead understood in its social, interpersonal, historical and dynamic dimensions. At the centre of social inquiry is, thus, the use of language in specific social situations. Contextual parameters are introduced in order to show how the language used is dependent on particular meaning-conventions (global context) or on particular features of the social situation within which actors communicate with each other about the world (local context).

However, it also encourages an opening up of the discipline towards debates and concepts from other areas of social inquiry. This chapter is, essentially, a review of the contemporary discourse approaches to international politics. The review centres on the question of how these approaches have dealt with power and exclusion and will lead to a typology that establishes the central parameters for the discussion of the first major research question in Chapter 3 – namely: how can discourse-based approaches and analytical frameworks help to visualize the interplay of power and exclusion in the study of international policy-making processes as communicative practices?
