Call for Papers: Challenges to the Current World Order

Dates: September 12, 2013-September 14, 2013
Proposal or Application Due: March 01, 2013
Location: Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Sponsor: Italian Political Science Association
Conference Description:
While in the 1990s the West-centred world order, the declared primacy of the liberal democracy, and the international leadership of the United States of America (US) appeared virtually unchallenged, in the last years a growing number of challenges have been emerging. This section has the objective of unveiling these challenges, which are understood as a diversified set of factors that may either exogenously or endogenously defy the primacy of the West-centred world order. Recently, the so-called rising powers and non-state actors have been seen by pundits and policy-makers as potentially challenging the foundations of the current world order. In particular, the emergence of alternative and competing models have allegedly challenged the status quo of liberal democracy as a universal value, the current economic system, and the international institutions, with the latter often seen as representing the interests of the West.
In addition, such phenomena as transnational crime with its different domains of operation may undermine political, social, and economic basis of the world order. However, the challenges to the world order may not necessarily be actor-driven, e.g. regimes alternative to democracy, but can also comprise factors and processes that may occur without specific inducement. Those challenges inter alia are failed states, areas of limited statehood, or information technologies, and the latter may be used as a tool to compromise international security.

In the case of panel proposals indication of up to five papers is encouraged, however, not required at this stage. Please send your panel proposals to section chairs at nelli.babayan@fu and
