Engagement or dismissiveness? Intersecting international theory and global health

Nathan A. Paxton, Jeremy Youde

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    International relations theorists and global health politics scholars largely fail to communicate with one another. We argue that drawing on insights from classic and contemporary international theory more explicitly will positively augment the study of global health politics. This paper highlights four major theoretical orientations in the international relations literature (realism, neoliberal institutionalism, constructivism, and feminism) and discusses how an understanding of these perspectives can strengthen our understanding of global health policy.
