The Anthropocene era brings evolving challenges to international relations. The impact of human activities on the earth system makes it impossible for us not to put IR within the Anthropocene context. IR should include the Anthropocene context in theoretical and practical debates to stay relevant to current conditions. When IR recognizes the Anthropocene in a limited context, the debates will round at resulting partial and incomplete responses in facing this era’s complex and urgent challenges.
Keywords: Anthropocene, human activities, ecological challenges, international politics, environmental crises
