ABSTRACT
This paper critiques present secular international relations theory from the perspective of spiritual universalism. It debates the work of prominent writers in the field of international relations and argues that multi-religious partnerships need to be made to facilitate the process of universal ethical dialogue. Rather than religious involvement in international relations being regarded as a divisive influence as posited by Fukuyama and Huntington, this paper aims to show how the underlying spiritual practice and ethics belonging to all religions is a force for harmony. This force of harmony brings with it possibilities to establish real peace and co-operation between nations. To further this argument I will examine present international relations theory and their critique of universalism, dialogue and religion.
