This article explores recent scholarship in the area of care ethics and International Relations. The article begins by tracing the journey of care ethics into the realm of the international or ‘the global’, and then moves on to elaborate on recent scholarship in the area of care ethics in International Relations. Through a discussion of three key areas – violence and conflict, the body, and the ‘pluriverse’ – I argue that feminist care ethics has the potential to offer a way forward in the light of growing critiques of moral rationalism in the international ethics/International Political Theory literature.

This article explores recent charges of Western-centrism and gender essentialism in care ethics. In response to these charges, and informed by the work of Carol Gilligan, I argue for a view of care ethics that regards it not primarily as a normative theory advocating for care and care workers, but as a critical ethics that voices and enacts resistance to Cartesian splits and hierarchies. These are not just gender hierarchies; rather, care ethics resists all binaries that divide people into categories and separate them from others, and, indeed, from themselves.
