Adler-Nissen (2014) shows that national diplomacy is challenged by the rise of non-state actors from transnational companies to non-governmental organizations which struggle for dominant positions in the field. The EU’s new diplomatic service (the European External Action Service), one of the most important foreign policy inventions in Europe to date, does not, on the one hand, challenge national diplomacy in a material sense. On the other hand, it symbolically questions the state’s meta-capital and monopolistic position of symbolic power when defining, for instance, the “genuine diplomat” (Adler-Nissen 2014: 671).

Narrative is constitutive of action in organizations insofar “that stories shape the organizational landscape as individuals and organizations become actors in their own stories” (Fenton and Langley 2011: 1186). In IR the concept of narrative is, however, mostly related to practices of cultural storytelling to describe processes of community building and identity construction, for instance in the process of European integration (Eder 2009) or in historical foreign policy changes (Barnett 1999).

Hence, this term can, as we have shown, become an invaluable device for the analysis of transnational space. 0005  International Practice Theory are, however, several theoretical challenges associated with the term since it was never fully defined by Bourdieu. These conceptual ambiguities concern, for instance, when shared practices constitute a field, whether there is a hierarchy between fields, and how they relate to each other. However, the main proponents of Bourdieu in IR, such as Pouliot, Berling, or AdlerNissen, demonstrate that research on security, identity, community, and sovereignty can benefit from a Bourdieu-based perspective.
