World Politics and Dialogue of Civilizations Series

This new series focuses on the key challenges in world politics with a critical and pluralist angle.

It assumes that mutual understanding is the fundamental prerequisite for humankind’s inclusive development, and that open, respectful, and equitable dialogue among different cultural and civilizational frameworks is essential in these times of dramatic global change and uncertainty for developing effective cooperation and partnership.

The series aims to explore alternative models of the social, political and economic developments at regional and world levels in order to advance theoretical understanding, promote political debate, and provide policy-oriented advice on six broad macro-areas:

  • POLICIES, INSTITUTIONS, AND SHARED PROSPERITY (examines how the international community, including state and non-state actors alike, can generate shared prosperity through common policies)
  • INFRASTRUCTURE for gLOBAL INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT (analyses how the development of infrastructure promotes social and economic justice)
  • THE ECONOMY BEYOND THE FAILURE OF CONVENTIONAL MODELS (studies how non-mainstream approaches respond to the failures of neo-liberal economic models)
  • EAST AND WEST, north and south (addresses the question of how cultural and political identities can survive and flourish in the context of globalization)
  • CIVILISATIONS AGAINST THE THREAT OF SOCIAL BARBARISM (explores the way social barbarism has become part of contemporary socio-philosophical discourse)
  • LIFE SPACE FOR HUMANITY (explores how different family systems and social structures of different civilisations are related to civil cohesion and economic development)

The series is linked to the research carried out by the Dialogue of Civilization-DoC Research Institute (Berlin), but it is open to external contribution. Indeed, dissonant voices/opinions, if adequately formulated, are welcome in the debate that the series encourages.

Different formats apply to the series, ranging from ‘short-form’ issue based polemical/discussion readers on key topics to standard monograph length more academic titles and research edited collections.
