Presentation and aims

Cooperation is a multifaceted phenomenon of international politics that can be studied, in a combined way, from the interactions among different levels of analysis (international, regional, domestic and subnational) and the use of different theories and models of analysis. In addition, cooperation can be examined in several dimensions (technical, scientific and technological, economic, financial and political), modalities (bilateral, trilateral and multilateral) and involves different actors: States, regional blocs, multilateral organizations and interest groups. It is worth highlighting the increasingly prominent role of subnational governments as an instrument for the development of states/provinces and cities. Furthermore, international cooperation, in its various dimensions and modalities, occurs in different institutional arrangements that rule the patterns of interaction among the actors.

We encourage the submission of papers that analyze, theoretically and empirically, the phenomenon on screen, with emphasis on comparative research and/or case studies. We are especially interested in researches on:

 

  1. Conceptual and empirical discussions on decentralized cooperation/paradiplomacy/ federative diplomacy, highlighting the role of subnational entities and the need for a better definition of these phenomena;
  2. Decision-making on Brazilian foreign policy regarding international cooperation, highlighting variations according to issues such as international trade, human rights and the environment;
  3. The relation between public policies and international cooperation for development;
  4. Cooperation and integration in regional politics, examining blocs such as the Mercosur, the Unasur, the European Union, the African Union and the ASEAN;
  5. International cooperation as an instrument for solving contemporary global challenges.
