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 nature and future of the global order in which we live, with a striking focus on global and regional international organisations. These organizations are the sites of competition, rivalries, and cooperation as well as friendships, coalitions of the willing and strategic alliances – both on the individual, bureaucratic and government levels. 

This workshop seeks to bring together researchers of all career stages to discuss global ordering processes. Particular attention will be given to papers that address issues such as international (global and regional) organisations, European/regional foreign policies, regional integration, diplomatic practices and power transition/rivalries. The workshop aims to address – although not exclusively – questions such as: 

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

- How, if at all, 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? 

- Do 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 for Advanced Studies, European University Institute, Italy.
