Abstract

The discipline of International Relations (IR) has been studied all over the world as part of the rapidly growing field of the sociology of science. The sociology of science examines the status of and delineation between disciplines, along with the characteristics of researchers, their mutual relations, and links with non-academic communities. It also studies the relationship between IR and other disciplines, e.g., between IR and political science or regional studies. This review of IR is the first attempt to systematically and comprehensively assess the state of the discipline in Poland. The Polish case is an interesting one because, since having become established in academia in the 1920s, IR has experienced two major transitions that changed the normative underpinnings of scholarship.
