ABSTRACT
This article describes the German International Relations (IR) community and its research and writing preferences based on data from the 2014 Teaching, Research, and International Policy (TRIP) faculty survey. Germany has a comparatively young IR community with a relatively large proportion of women, which, however, changes at the level of tenured professorships. German IR scholars are, on average, more oriented towards IR theory and the study of international organization(s) than other national IR communities. The overall picture is one of paradigmatic as well as theoretical pluralism and a rejection of ontological warfare, despite more IR scholars in Germany self-identifying as social constructivists than anywhere else in the world. Their methodological orientations are overwhelmingly qualitative - again above average as compared to other IR communities in the world. At the same time, German respondents identified methodology and epistemology as two of the main factors dividing IR scholars today. Moreover, German IR scholars are almost completely internationalized, leaning strongly toward the Anglo-American core of the discipline. The data reveal a vivid image of IR as an »American social science«.
