The English School is often characterized as a ‘via media’ between realist and liberal theory and concerns itself with questions about international forms of recognition, belonging, customs, and conventions. This chapter outlines three key dimensions of the English School: the ‘Three Traditions’ of international thought and the English School’s central theoretical construction of ‘international society’; the distinction between primary and secondary international institutions; and the tension between solidarist and pluralist forms of international society. It demonstrates how the English School’s approach can be used to analyze the significance of the G20 in contemporary global governance and proposes that we conceptualize the G20 as a new sort of great powers’ club with responsibility for maintaining and steering international order.
