SEPTEMBER 7th, 2022, 10:00 - 11:00 AM (US EASTERN TIME). It has been widely claimed that mainstream IR studies failed to satisfactorily explain, much less predict, the end of the Cold War and the contours of the post-Cold War world now in the process of unforeseen and dramatic changes. Have we again missed something in our assessments? In the GIRS “situation room” you can meet scholars of different cultures, religions, and civilizations exploring how different narratives describe and influence major world crises: you will hear not simply one worldview posing as universal, but different narratives on contemporary global crises (from the Russia-Ukraine war, to the emerging global food, health, and energy crises). PANELISTS: Maria Mälksoo, Shiping Tang, Xiaoming Huang, George Soroka, Thomas Biersteker, Navnita Chadha Behera, Sean Molloy, Siba Grovogui, Jocelyne Cesari, and Vendulka Kubalkova (Panel Moderator).
