Concluding thoughts

ByMarcos S. Scauso

In the concluding chapter, I first discuss how Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui’s understanding of a profession of faith allows us to create a much more democratic dialogue between different approaches that are concerned with the problem of difference and international politics, constructing a more egalitarian and reflexive possibility of debate and ally-ship. In this sense, the concluding chapter contributes to the analysis of the boundaries of International Relations and a possibility of constructing a different kind of locus of interpretation and praxis. Finally, the discussion of the implications that surge from my interpretation of Rivera’s work also leads towards the examination of my own methodological and ethical dilemmas; I discuss how I aim to walk in a particular here/now, risking contributions that move beyond the safety of inaction and also undoing colonial boundaries that still constrain International Relations.
