Innovations in International Affairs


About the Series

Innovations in International Affairs aims to provide cutting-edge analyses of controversial trends in international affairs with the intent to innovate our understanding of global politics. Hosting mainstream as well as alternative stances, the series promotes both the re-assessment of traditional topics and the exploration of new aspects.

The series invites both engaged scholars and reflective practitioners, and is committed to bringing non-western voices into current debates.

Innovations in International Affairs is keen to consider new book proposals in the following key areas:

  • Innovative topics: related to aspects that have remained marginal in scholarly and public debates
  • International crises: related to the most urgent contemporary phenomena and how to interpret and tackle them
  • World perspectives: related mostly to non-western points of view

To submit a proposal for this series, please contact the series editor, Raffaele Marchetti: [email protected]
