Towards a New Multilateralism: Cultural Divergence and Political Convergence?


Add your own review!

Overview

This edited book focuses on the dynamic balance between global cultural diversity and multilateral convergence in relevant policy areas that involve actual and potential policy convergences (and divergences): the environment, trade, peace and security, and human rights. It offers theoretical reflections about the impact of the concept of multiple modernities on new ideas, cultural backgrounds, and/or national or regional particularities. An interdisciplinary team of authors combines comparative policy analysis with theoretical dialogue about the conceptual, institutional, normative, and political dimensions of a new kind of multilateral cooperation. Finally, the book concludes that by stimulating an intercultural dialogue which goes beyond a mere rational choice approach, we can foster progress through a better understanding of the opportunities and limitations offered by a pluralist, varied, post-hegemonic, and multilayered form of multilateral cooperation. This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of European/EU studies, economics, human rights, climate change, history, cultural studies, international relations, international political economy, security studies, and international law.

Reviews

Multilateral co-operation is in peril, yet as the Covid-19 emergency has demonstrated it is needed more than ever. This book, drawing on the expertise and perspectives of scholars from many different countries and cultures, notably from China, East-Asia, Europe and the Americas, explores the current threat to multilateral institutions from the rise of nationalism and the re-emergence of great power politics, and sets out the practical reforms and changes in discourse which are needed to renew the multilateral ideal. It makes a valuable contribution to a crucial debate. Andrew Gamble, University of Sheffield and University of Cambridge, UK. Multilateralism is under threat: this timely and balanced volume considers how obstacles to its renewal can be overcome, and new regimes of collaboration born to reflect fast-changing international realities. Louise Fawcett, University of Oxford, UK.
