Example text

Specifically, it looks at the power operating ‘internally’, that is, among friends, and ‘externally’, that is, how practices of friendship affect third parties and international order. In this sense, Berenskoetter’s conception of international friendship is a normative one, which emphasises the transformative nature of friendship as an agent of change in international politics. In Chapter 4 Lucile Eznack and Simon Koschut open the allies/friends ‘black box’ to determine more precisely whether and to what extent international friendship is affectively charged.

These practices themselves sustain and are sustained by affective attachment. Through acts and facts, through principles and practices, friends construct a ‘relational culture’, a culture of their friendship that both friends value and seek to perpetuate, thus influencing their behaviour (Eznack, 2012, p. 24; Hopf, 2010, p. 554). In a relationship of international friendship, this mutual affect and the affect of both states for their special relation are roughly symmetrical. However, this need not be the case in all relations within an alliance or even a security community.

If this is the case, in what sense are they then not involved in some variety of friendship? It might be tempting to simply push these problems and considerations to one side. It might be thought that a more productive approach (and one that gets more quickly to the truth) is to concede that talk of friendship occurs in IR, but to claim that this is ‘merely metaphor’. The intuition here is that when we delve deeper into the language of friendship, those employing it do not really mean that what they observe is friendship, but just that the phenomena are like friendship.
