Abstract in another language

This chapter highlights the need for more cross-regional comparisons of non-Western scholars, as such endeavours can reveal ideas beyond casesensitive debates. We argue that a close reading of non-Western bodies of literature shows that not only do non-Western theories exist, but that they specifically share distinct and relevant questions and ideas which reveal themselves and more importantly their commonalities through such a comparative reading in political philosophy. Therefore, our question is whether or not decidedly non-Western theories on the world order,
interrelations, and mobilities exist, and if so, what their commonalities, differences, and references are. In turn, this would contribute to larger debates on decolonialising political theory by providing further evidence that positionality matters content-wise and opens up debates
on how to incorporate said content into IR theory. This chapter therefore explores the following research question: How does non-Western theory change the perception of the world order and present it differently?
