In this article, I would like to first spend a little time clarifying (or perhaps muddying) what is meant by "domestic" and "international" when people talk about conflicts and how they are resolved. Geographical and content-defining terms tossed about cavalierly say more about competing hierarchies and elitism than functional geopolitical designations. Next, I will suggest that part of the problem is how we locate theory in this debate: What kinds of theories lend themselves to generalization and which ones do not? And does the problem lay with the theory or the theory interpreter?
