Abstract:This dissertation advocates a broadly "cultural" approach to the study of large-scale change in international politics. It argues that the most effective way to identify and assess such change is to examine changes in political practices over time. On a theoretical level, it offers arguments for why and how we might go about studying political practices. On an empirical level, it provides a detailed comparative study of characteristic practices of two successive periods in European international politics. It analyses what it takes to be a profound transformation of European diplomatic practices between the 18th and 19th centuries (1700–1848). Substantively, this transformation can be glossed as the modern emergence of practices of international governance. The period of the "Concert of Europe" witnessed the rise, for the first time in European history, of managerial practices and techniques in international politics. This dissertation sketches the nature and parameters of these new practices, and contrasts them with their ancien-regime predecessors. The new managerial practices included paternalistic practices of governing wards (e.g. Europe, populations and subjects, minor powers, or fragile entities like the Ottoman Empire or Restoration France); of governing together (joint action, multilateral authorisation and delegation); of governing one another (techniques of mutual control and "grouping"); and of governing oneself (pressures for self-mastery and self-control). They centred on the new problem of intervention, broadly understood; on new themes like publicity and the dangers of unintended and perverse consequences; and on techniques for the continuous, active, directed management of people and autonomous socio-political entities and forces over time. This study suggests that existing conceptions of international governance are inadequate to the task of identifying and analysing such practices; it highlights previously unnoticed features of Concert-era diplomacy (and its predecessor) in systematically investigating the nature of international governance and management as they first took shape. This study therefore hopes to demonstrate the reality and implications of fundamental change in the broad character of international relations over time, and to provide new perspectives on the formation and evolution of the modern European states system.
