The international order: more geopolitical or more plural?

Publication date:
Pol Morillas (coord.)

Revista CIDOB d’Afers Internacionals is 40 years old in 2023, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of CIDOB itself. With that in mind, we are publishing this special issue of our journal, entitled “The international order: more geopolitical or more plural?” It offers a close-up view of the current state of the paradigm shift in international relations. The monograph opens with a review of the development of this area of study over the last four decades. It goes on to explore aspects such as the crisis of democracy and of the liberal international order, the geopolitical rivalry between the United States and China, the reshaping of global value chains, the climate agenda, tech diplomacy, and the Asian outlook on the international order, as well as the concept of “planetary politics” and the influence of cities as international actors. In the appendix, an infographic charts the journal’s development over its 40-year history.
