Joint IPSA Workshop by RC37 and RC2 - Rethinking Political Development: Cultures, Civilizations and Identity

Joint IPSA Workshop by RC37 and RC2 - Rethinking Political Development: Cultures, Civilizations and Identity | Ceriscope Puissance | Scoop.it

Evénement les 1er et 2 février 2014

Ceriscope's insight:

Rationale for the Workshop: The workshop will bring together international scholars in an effort to explore the different facets of nationalism---secular and non-secular, and sovereignty---absolute and cooperative, in the context of the evolving perceptions of human identity immersed in different cultures and civilizations in the changing global power relations.

            Given the fact that Political Science has varied dimensions the discrepancy between model and local empirical conditions are often within the margin of accommodation where cultural weight rests, impacting the effectiveness of outcomes.  

            The recent history across the world comprising political upheavals in the Middle East and rising politico-economic-social tensions in Asia has presented many cases in which societies have not displayed a political behavior in conformity with the expectations of either the normative or empirical facets of political theory. This departure may be due to the unaccounted for importance of the cultural elements that the different political models seem either to exclude, or treat lightly. Is it therefore useful and/or necessary to revise political development models to put greater emphasis on these cultural variables?

          Nation-states from the Middle East to South and South East Asia to Far East present sometime a dysfunctional competition for control of resources, both known and yet-to-be found. Could the unresolved legacies of such behavior and a weak political culture serve as catalysts to transform the state-society relations to a new model of a positive national sovereignty--the sovereignty of the citizen and the service-provider character of state institutions? Could this development create one world and fundamentally change the traditional definition of national sovereignty, outmoding national boundaries and negative (jingoistic) aspects of nationalism?

        Against the backdrop of geopolitical and ideological rivalries could Muslim majority countries meet their development needs by “progressive openness’? Could Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Libya, Malaysia, Pakistan, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey, among others, engage in fruitful cooperation with the West in productive co-existence, leading to close cooperation to manage, if not resolve the conflict between Western civilization and Non-Western cultures in the changing global power relations?

Laurence Daziano - La nouvelle vague des émergents

Laurence Daziano - La nouvelle vague des émergents | Ceriscope Puissance | Scoop.it

Ouvrage paru en 2013

Ceriscope's insight:

En 2001, un économiste de Goldman Sachs introduisait l’acronyme BRICS pour marquer l’entrée des pays émergents dans l’économie mondiale. Le concept d’émergence connaît un renouveau marqué qui correspond à un contexte international profondément métamorphosé. Depuis l’apparition de ce concept, des classifications aux critères larges et parfois vagues sont apparues pour tenter d’identifier les nouveaux pays émergents. Dix ans après, les BRICS ont émergé et sont confrontés aux défis de sociétés quasiment développées. Parallèlement, de nouveaux pays émergents, définis par cinq critères économiques, apparaissent. Ces critères sont une population nombreuse, un taux de croissance potentielle à dix ans oscillant autour de 5 %, une urbanisation à 50 % en croissance, des besoins en infrastructures permettant d’accompagner le décollage économique et une stabilité politique qui permet de mettre en œuvre des projets à long terme. En vertu de ces critères, les prochains pays émergents sont les BENIVM, désignant le Bangladesh, l’Éthiopie, le Nigeria, l’Indonésie, le Vietnam et le Mexique. Déjà, derrière les BENIVM, d’autres pays, disposant d’une population moins nombreuse et d’une économie davantage liée à l’exploitation des matières premières, sont prêts à prendre le relais de la croissance mondiale ou, du moins, à y participer fortement. Or la France est économiquement peu présente dans les BENIVM et ne fournit pas (encore ?) les efforts nécessaires pour redéployer ses moyens économiques et commerciaux vers ces futures puissances économiques.

Implosion: The End of Russia and What It Means for America

Implosion: The End of Russia and What It Means for America | Ceriscope Puissance | Scoop.it

Evénement le 2 octobre 2013

 

Ceriscope's insight:

While America is preoccupied with threats from the Middle East and China, Ilan Berman of the American Foreign Policy Council argues that a monumental transformation is underway in the most massive nation on earth – nuclear-armed Russia. He posits that Russia’s first crisis will be a social one: a demographic collapse of the Slavic population, gutted by alcoholism, early death, and abortions that historically have outnumbered live births. Filling the void is a rising Muslim population, including radical Islamists who seek to subvert the nature of the Russian state. In the background is an emerging strategic rivalry with neighboring China, which has growing designs on Russia’s resource-rich east. But that’s just the beginning, according to Berman. He paints a troubling picture of Russia’s precarious future, how the former superpower might unravel, and how a collapsing Russian state will impact America and the world.
