Rising Powers in the Emerging World Order, Craiova

About the event

That Great Powers have often either trespassed upon the international law or even claimed for revision of the world order is no novelty as it has been part of the normalcy of global politics for centuries. The promise of the post-Cold War US led order has proven as a futile “holiday from history” hardly betters ordering the international relations.

Hence, projecting any post- 2008 world order relying on the primacy of the US has been even further downgraded as an awkward scenario-build up by the uncertainty that Trump Administration has successfully injected upon the international systems.

While theories and analysis in the IR have been at best time and again fulfilling the prophecies, current scholarship seek to engage into a truly global theoretical discussion of world order avoiding any Western-like bias.

The Panel addresses questions such as: Do we face the current order fragmenting into complementary constitutive orders? What are the new directions that the rules-based global order may evolve to? What is the global politics deficit that the US needs to address in order to smoothly adjust the liberal world order and how is Trump administration to prioritize that? What are Russia and China complements to the current world order?

Night Owl Roundtable Session

The night owl session opens the discussion on prospects for the global order.
We invite participants to introduce both normative and empirical studies to explore the issue of emerging world orders and connect it with regional initiatives in the EU and Eurasia.
The Session is open to both well- established academia as much as to scholars in their early or post Doctoral programmes.

The presenters would benefit from the participation of the guest panelists that would also engage in the discussion.
We expect to select a maximum of 8 papers that may be further included in a special edited volume with a reputable publishing house which is further subject to the quality of accepted papers.

The international panel and the night owl roundtable discussion were arranged in the framework of the 10th International Conference  “State and Society in Europe” organized by the “Alexandru and Aristia Aman” Foundation and “Alexandru and Aristia Aman” County Library alongside the Center for Foreign Policy and Strategic Studies
