Argument

How can be understood the 21st Century Economic Nationalisms? Is there any established relationships between States Economic Nationalisms and the current observed transformations of foreign policies? How to understand the British reluctance to pursue regional economic cooperation within the European Union (EU) through the BREXIT or the Chinese ambition to expand its economic cooperation through a wider extension of its commercial activities, especially as translated in the reactivation of the Silk Roads? Why, finally, do some states or governments prefer to confine their international domains of cooperation, while other seek to expand them? All these questions fall within multidisciplinary approaches of foreign policy, development diplomacy, economic diplomacy, political ideology and economic nationalism which the field of international relations of the late 20th Century, early 21st do not nevertheless encompass.

So, this panel focuses on the way the international project of China related to the reactivation of the Silk Roads engaged in 2013 differently challenges, the international political economy, global political power configuration, sovereignty, foreign policy choice and decision-making process. Yet, states are much more inhibited by security threats, economic pressure and re-design their international trade strategies.

The panel is open to interdisciplinary approaches but remains focused on three objectives:

The first looks for empirical and theoretical knowledge about the policy framework of the Chinese international project on the New Silk Roads.

The second relates to the tracing and mapping of social and political trajectory and geographies of the New Silk Roads as well as its effects on world’s politics.

Thirdly, the panel wishes to develop a comparative approach by hosting diversified case studies.

Broadly expected, are abstracts of 500 words maximum which cover any of the following aspects:

1- Foreign policy and transfer of norms and experiences

2- Foreign policy and translations of economic nationalisms

3- The construction of transnational political projects as foreign policy objectives

4- The resources, objectives and power relations in foreign policy

5- The New Silk Roads and the transformation of world political order

6- The New Silk Roads and Chinese world political power

7- Discourses on the New Silk Roads and The Chinese International Relations
