Hegemonía y Economía Política Internacional: Aportes de la Teoría Crítica

In the Social Sciences and the IR fields, hegemony is one of the concepts that implies the

Such a lack of a concrete definition, especially in the IR field, turns hegemony into a term that might confer the idea
of homogeneous totality, meanwhile explaining the different and particular relationships and degrees of power, in a
diffuse and imprecise way.
Thus, this paper proposes a general approach about the concept hegemony, and the relationship between hegemony,

develop this theme under the critical theory perspective; and finally, it evaluates the specificity of the use of the
concept hegemony, within the problem of power.
