Pilgrim City: Seeing International Relations Again for the First Time

  • Mariano Barbato
Part of the Culture and Religion in International Relations book series (CRIR)


International Relations is fundamentally secular: its Westphalian theories, its Westphalian practice, its past since 1648, and surely its future. Usually we have a clear picture of our discipline. The postsecular pilgrim project contested this picture. Religion is part and parcel of International Relations. It always was, it will surely be so and this has its advantages. Talking to Critical Theory, Scott Thomas summarized this line of argument. The religious Global South will gain weight, at least demographically and its religious sources of how to change the world should be realized by those who usually claim the business of facilitating chance for themselves.1
