Since the 1980s, the discipline of International Relations has seen a series of disputes over its foundations. However, there has been one core concept that, although addressed in various guises, had never been explicitly and systematically engaged with in these debates: the human. This volume is the first to address comprehensively the topic of the human in world politics. It comprises cutting-edge accounts by leading scholars of how the human is (or is not) theorized across the entire range of IR theories, old and new. The authors provide a solid foundation for future debates about how, why, and to which ends the human has been or must (not) be built into our theories, and systematically lay out the implications of such moves for how we come to see world politics and humanity's role within it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Human Beings in International Relations is a theoretical treasure trove. Jacobi and Freyberg-Inan make us aware of a remarkable variety of theoretical perspectives on 'thinking the human'. They make those perspectives resonate with or contradict each other, unburying many research paths that must have been there all along, but still await our analysis.' Stefano Guzzini, Danish Institute for International Studies, Uppsala University and Pontifical Catholic University, Rio de Janeiro
'Talk of 'human nature', once common in international theory and international studies, has been much less prominent in recent decades. But thinking about the category of 'the human' can never be too foreign to any account of social life, and international affairs are no exception. This remarkable volume foregrounds both the extent to which our existing theoretical tools are interwoven with assumptions about human nature, and makes possible a series of considerations reaching beyond those assumptions.' Patrick Thaddeus Jackson, Associate Dean, School of International Service, American University, Washington DC
'It is a collection that accomplishes to a large extent what the editors Jacobi and Freyberg-Inan in their introduction promise to deliver: 'a comprehensive, balanced, open-minded, and up-to-date study of the human element, its relation to world politics, and our ways of producing knowledge about them.' Asli Calkivik, International Studies Review
