Global order, international organisations and organisational options @ Sala del Capitolo, Badia Fiesolana
This workshop will focus on international (global and regional) organisations, European / regional foreign policies, regional integration, and power transition/rivalries.

Academics and pundits alike are currently debating the world order in which we live, and its future, with a striking focus on global and regional international organisations. These organisations are the sites of competition, rivalries, and cooperation as well as friendships, coalitions of the willing and strategic alliances – both on individual and group levels.

This workshop seeks to promote debate on the future of the world order through the exchange and dissemination of new research in research programs of international (global and regional) organisations, European / regional foreign policies, regional integration, and power transition/rivalries. The workshop will aim to address – although not exclusively – questions such as:

– What strategies do global (e.g. WTO, IMF, UN) and regional (e.g. ASEAN, AU, EU) organisations and their member states have available to navigate different – and possibly hostile – institutional settings?

– How do international organisations adapt when dealing with competition between big powers?

– What role do informal and smaller auxiliary institutional forms play in larger multilateral settings?

– Have diplomatic practices and negotiation styles as well as their content changed over time?

– Does partisan politics play a role in organisations, and if so, how?

– What is the role of associated countries in sustaining or disrupting organisational activities?

– What are the distinctive roles of non-state actors, including economic actors, in the midst of these intergovernmental bodies?

The workshop will be held on 13 – 14 October 2022 at the Robert Schuman Centre, European University Institute, Italy.
