Rethinking Asia and International Relations – a call for proposals

We would like to invite proposals for the new series Rethinking Asia and International Relations, edited by Emilian Kavalski, University of Western Sydney, Australia.

The series seeks to provide thoughtful consideration both of the growing prominence of Asian actors on the global stage and the changes in the study and practice of world affairs that they provoke. It intends to offer a comprehensive parallel assessment of the full spectrum of Asian states, organisations, and regions and their impact on the dynamics of global politics.

The series seeks to encourage conversation on:

  • what rules, norms, and strategic cultures are likely to dominate international life in the ‘Asian Century’
  • how will global problems be reframed and addressed by a ‘rising Asia’
  • which institutions, actors, and states are likely to provide leadership during such ‘shifts to the East’
  • whether there is something distinctly ‘Asian’ about the emerging patterns of global politics

Such comprehensive engagement not only aims to offer a critical assessment of the actual and prospective roles of Asian actors, but also seeks to rethink the concepts, practices, and frameworks of analysis of world politics.

We are interested in interdisciplinary research monographs undertaking comparative studies of Asian actors and their impact on the current patterns and likely future trajectories of international relations. The series also offers a platform for pioneering explorations of the ongoing transformations in global politics as a result of Asia’s increasing centrality to the patterns and practices of world affairs.

For more information on how to submit a proposal to this series, please contact Kirstin Howgate, Publisher for Politics and International Relations.
