The Workshop welcomes papers that analyze:

  • Empirical analyses which recognize the nature of regional orders, how they come about, their main constitutive elements, and their sources of legitimacy.

  • Different regional orders’ hierarchical systems. Studies can focus on hierarchies based on different kinds of material power (the nature of asymmetric economic and trade relations, ranking in military matters, including defense spending, degree of military technological development and defense alliance system) and ideational resources (degree of legitimacy of the political order, shared values, worldview).
  • The intersection between New Hierarchy Studies and different IR theoretical approaches, in particular- liberal/rationalist ones , social network-based and postcolonial ones.
