Rethinking Asia and International Relations
Series Editor: Emilian Kavalski, University of Western Sydney,
This 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
- 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.
This series invites proposals for interdisciplinary research
monographs undertaking comparative studies of Asian actors and
their impact on the current patterns and likely future trajectories
of international relations. Furthermore, it 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.
