The final and concluding chapter summarises the book and paves the way for further inquiries. As politics takes place among people, hermeneutic encounters are central to this process. Accordingly, a methodology that reflects the double hermeneutic is required to allow research to draw conclusions from its observations. Against this backdrop, the chapter engages with a range of potential criticisms against interpretive research before showing how hermeneutic approaches matter for new insights into global politics. Especially concerning questions of global governance, a focus on concrete interaction rather than abstract entities seems fruitful as a way to address questions of institutional design.
