The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, Bologna Center offers an interdisciplinary program of studies, with an emphasis on European studies, international economics, politics and history. More than 30 countries are represented in the student body each year. Over 6,000 graduates of the Center, which was established in 1955, now work in 100 countries around the world.
In 1997, students at the center began publishing a scholarly journal in order to provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of ideas about current issues in the field of international relations. The Bologna Center Journal of International Affairs is now seeking submissions for a special issue on environmental policy issues.
CALL FOR PAPERS
America's ability to forge global consensus is declining: the unipolar balance of power is faltering. Which state—or states—will take up the heavy burdens of leadership? China is capable but uninterested. The EU is interested but incapable.
As the balance of power in the core shifts, the periphery is in flux. Tensions are rising as developing countries challenge the status quo by striving for greater influence and regional authority.
What will the new global architecture look like? Which countries will lead – and how will emergent powers be integrated? How will developing and rising regional powers help shape the new international system?
