Dedicated to the Good: Norm Entrepreneurs in International Relations

  • Carmen WunderlichEmail author
Part of the Norm Research in International Relations book series (NOREINRE)


This chapter presents the state of the art on research on norm dynamics in IR with a focus on the role of norm entrepreneurs for the construction, maintenance, strengthening, and change of global norms. Wunderlich provides a comprehensive account of how the concept of norm entrepreneurship has been applied in liberal strands of the norm literature covering the type of actors usually summarized under the label, their characteristics, strategies, motives, and objectives. In doing so, she brings to the fore a normative bias that has led liberal-constructivist norm scholars to focus on prototypical Western liberal actors and their efforts to advocate seemingly universal norms. The extent to which actors other than transnational activist networks or good international citizens are committed to the construction and diffusion of (Western liberal) norms has been largely ignored. The chapter thus lays the foundation for the book’s goal of overcoming this one-sided focus taking recourse to more recent efforts in the realm of critical norm studies.
