Abstract

The importance of the subaltern vision of order and justice lies in the fact that the large majority of states in the international system can be categorized as subaltern for they are weak, vulnerable, and, therefore, open to external penetration. While this is a function of the early stage of state-making in which they find themselves, their vulnerabilities owe substantially to their colonial experience and the workings of an in-ternational system that concentrates power in the hands of a small number of states that form a de facto concert that controls the international security and economic agendas. According to the subaltern pers-pective, international order must be acceptable to the large majority of (subaltern) states otherwise it will continue to remain precarious and unstable. While the hegemonic standpoint emphasizes order among states and justice within them, the subaltern perspective stresses order within states and justice among them. This tension has manifested itself, although not always very neatly, in such diverse arenas of inter-national politics as humanitarian intervention, nuclear proliferation, and the emergence of political Islam as the principal ideology of resistance against global hegemony.
