In a new article that has just been published online by International Studies Quarterly and will appear in one of the journal's next print issues, Sebastian Schindler and I argue that practice theory offers a distinct vantage point on how empirical analysis and normative evaluation can be brought together. A number of recent studies in International Relations have demonstrated the analytical potential of practice theory. We emphasize that practice theory also provides powerful tools for critically examining the practices of world politics. The article is open access and can be downloaded here.
