Call for Papers: Liberal International Order and Its challenges
IslamNews – The liberal international Order, established after the Second World War, faces potential challenges from its main driver US. The US hegemonic leadership is being challenged by the resurgent Russia and China. In the last few years, China emerged as the principle threat to the supremacy of United States and its role as the global hegemon. The rise of Trump doctrine, the Brexit vote, the resurgence of populism around the world, the decline in multilateralism, and trade protectionism have produced anxieties about the decline of a Liberal International Order. The rise of China’s authoritarian capitalist model, proliferation of nationalist politics, technology-induced disruptions, the resurgence of zero-sum geopolitics, and rejections of economic openness, have led some to question whether the roots of liberal international order is in a state of terminal decline. These are all beginning to shake the foundations of liberal world order. International Organisation such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) was built to promote the liberalisation of international trade for the global economy and economies of individual countries. But growing protectionist and unilateral actions of the nation states have threatened the basic foundation of the WTO. The former US President, Donald Trump’s declaration on globalization- as a less value to be cherished- has led to theoretical and analytical discourses on post liberal international order. The victory of Joe Biden as the president of the US has raised expectations about the restoration of some of the values of liberalism, but how far can he sustain the momentum needs to be seen. It is against this background that the Centre for International Politics and Law (CIPL) proposes to organize a two-day International Conference on the theme, “Liberal International Order and its Challenges”, at the Institute of Legal Studies and Research, GLA University, Mathura, India on 22-23 March 2021. The following themes are proposed for deliberation:
- Liberal International Order: History, evolution and decay
- Resurgence of China and Russia: Do they threaten the existing order?
- International Law and Trade War
- India and the Liberal International Order
- Globalization: Key challenges
- Challenges of Liberal International Order: Hyper-nationalism, populism, protectionism and pandemic
- Role of international organizations in sustaining liberal international order
