    .Oxford,Oxford University Press.p. 160-174.In this chapter, Leira and Neumann give a brief presentation of the history of colsuls and the consul system, and relate it to diplomacy today and in the past. They find that in the past, consular tasks were often not linked to diplomacy, and that consular tasks have been given priority in times when the international system is perceived to be changing. The consul system is both more agile and less tied to the idea of ​​imposing sovereignty than diplomacy, they argue. [url]

    .Palgrave MacMillan.p. 153-185.Concepts are defined by their meanings and uses and become powerful in battle with other concepts. The concepts discussed in this article, ‘empire’ and ‘imperialism’, have lately made their return to the grand stage of world politics, most significantly as descriptions, and indeed, self-descriptions of the role and position of the United States.

    .Cambridge University Press.p. 231-254.The article focuses on the practices that structure the relations between states and international organizations and seeks to capture the situated and contextualized character of how states operate within IOs, and how IOs operate vis-à-vis states.

    .Taylor & Francis.p. 387-401.With reference to the works of Carl Schmitt and Eric Voegelin, Iver Neumann argue that the key precondition for the co-existence of religions in the series Battlestar Galactica is the avoidance of what Voegelin calls political theology. Differences in creed, doctrine, and specific religious practices may exist side by side as long as certain practices associated with the sacred—in the case of BSG, primarily practices that have to do with burying and remembering the dead—are shared.

Books and reports
  • Neumann, Iver B., Halvard Leira [ed.] (2013). International Diplomacy. Thousand Oaks, CA, SAGE . 1408 pages. Following on from where 2004's widely acclaimed three-volume SAGE collection, Diplomacy (ed. Jonsson & Langhorne) left off, this new four-volume major work takes a new look at a subject which has matured and developed significantly over the past decade. With the rise of India, China and Brazil as well as of the global south, diplomacy's history looks different. Significant shifts have prompted scholars in the field to reconsider the historical sequences that are relevant to an understanding of what diplomacy is today, and where it may be heading. Increased medialization of glovbal politics and diplomacy has prompted an exponential growth in literature on public diplomacy.
  • Neumann, Iver B. (2013). Diplomatic Sites. New York, Columbia University Press. 176 pages. In this book Iver B. Neumann investigates diplomatic sites - from the dinner table to sites of conflict mediation and peace facilitation, via representations of diplomacy in popular culture.
  • Neumann, Iver B., Nicholas Kiersey [ed.] (2013). Battlestar Galactica and International Relations. London, Routledge. 226 pages. Looking at a television franchise like Battlestar Galactica (BSG) is no longer news within the discipline of International Relations. A growing number of scholars in and out of IR are studying the importance of cultural artifacts – popular or otherwise – for the phenomena that make up the core of our discipline.
  • Neumann, Iver B., Stefano Guzzini [ed.] (2012). The Diffusion of Power in Global Governance. Hampshire, England, Palgrave Macmillan. 276 pages. The study of global governance has often led separate lives within the respective camps of International Political Economy and Foucauldian Studies. Despite vast differences in these approaches, Guzzini and Neumann's study recognises that ongoing changes in global governance go far beyond a proliferation of steering techniques and has a systems-changing potential.
  • Neumann, Iver B., Cecilie B. Neumann (2012). Forskeren i forskningsprosessen. Oslo, Cappelen Damm Akademisk.. 120 pages. Metodelitteratur og veiledere oppfordrer ofte studenter og forskere til å reflektere over profesjonsidealer og forskerens etiske ansvar, men gir sjelden konkrete råd om hva man kan gjøre i praksis. Det gjør forfatterne av denne boka.
  • Neumann, Iver B., Thomas Ugelvik [ed.] (2012). Mat/viten. Oslo, Universitetsforlaget. 238 pages. Mat er mer enn næring. I denne boka ser bidragsyterne på mat fra ulike ståsted. De viser at matvaner og etikette er kulturelle størrelser. Maten man spiser kommuniserer noe om hvem man er og hvilke fellesskap man er del av.
  • Neumann, Iver B. (2012). At Home With the Diplomats. , Cornell University Press. 232 pages. In this book, Iver B. Neumann offers unprecedented access to the inner workings of a foreign ministry. Approaching contemporary diplomacy from an anthropological perspective, Neumann examines the various aspects of diplomatic work and practice, including immunity, permanent representation, diplomatic sociability, accreditation, and issues of gender equality.
