Call For Papers for the Journal of Rising Powers

There will be no bloc of ‘emerging economies’ rising up to challenge the Western order. But what comes next may be more chaotic and dangerous.” ~ Suzanne Nossel, July 6, 2016 Foreign Policy

Modern Diplomacy is pleased to announce a call for papers for the Journal of Rising Powers, a new analytical magazine dedicated to assessing the contemporary chaos that is the ebb and flow of tension when Big Powers inevitably comingle with Rising Powers on the global stage.

Back in 2008 it was easy to see scholars, analysts and diplomats all clamoring about the coming global transformation, where American hegemony would be on the wane and soon challenged and overcome by new powers and new power organizations like BRICS and MINT. That prophecy no longer seems destined for realization. And yet it also does not signal that American power will remain ascendant. Indeed, if anything, the new world of global affairs and power positioning is one of constant flux, dynamic interaction, and unreliability. The Journal of Rising Powers seeks contributors who want to dive deep into these processes, revealing the subtle nuances rarely addressed in media today. Geographically open and thematically broad, the Journal of Rising Powers is most interested in talented writers who are able to make connective bridges between established powers and rising powers, in the new initiatives, strategies, and policies that potentially challenge the global order or conversely seek to concretize the existing system, across politics, diplomacy, military, technology, economics, and intelligence.

Research should be rigorous, writing intellectual but accessible, and topics clearly have impact on the global community. Commentaries should run between 1000-1500 words while longer substantive analytical pieces can run to 3500 words. Unsolicited articles are welcome but potential ideas can also be submitted to the editor-in-chief.

CHANGE-AGENTS, THOUGHT-LEADERS, and NEW KNOWLEDGE:

Modern Diplomacy prides itself on being one of the fastest, most flexible, and adaptable entities in the world in terms of commissioned analysis and intellectual product. We welcome inquiries from corporations, think tanks, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations interested in the production of specific media like webinars, podcasts, broadcast ‘shows’, and thematically-focused commissioned research (examples of this are the immensely popular Iconoclast column, the influential Greater Caspian Project, and the forthcoming political analysis-entertainment podcast “The Slant,” as well as the eagerly anticipated launch in 2017 of the Journal of Rising Powers).

Designed and Destined Specifically for you!

While we will always remain true and committed to the principles of free media, open thought, and unfettered exchange of information and ideas, Modern Diplomacy embraces the opportunity to intensively interact with and engage major change-agents and thought-makers who would like to employ our unique research capability and analysis generation. We take pride in being able to produce answers to riddles and concerns that affect the specific missions and long-term goals of our partners around the world.

We look forward to your requests and making Modern Diplomacy work for you!

About MD

Modern Diplomacy is an invaluable platform for assessing and evaluating complex international issues that are often outside the boundaries of mainstream Western media and academia. We provide impartial and unbiased qualitative analysis in the form of political commentary, policy inquiry, in-depth interviews, special reports, and commissioned research.

We are a leading European opinion-maker with far-reaching influence across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. What we are not is a pure news-switchboard: we do not just provide information but expose readers to analysis that goes deeper than standard media exposes. Today’s world already has an avalanche of information, real and fake. What it needs more of are knowledge platforms that provide shared experiences, honestly told opinions, and unique takes informed by rigorous analytical logic.

Determined to voice will to power, to question but not dictate, to freely engage the intellectual arena and encourage passionate but respectful debate and discussion, MD does not stand behind any specific agenda, narrative, or school of thought. We aim to expose all ideas, thinkers, and arguments to the light and see what remains valid and sound. Contrary to the majority of news platforms, MD welcomes all imaginative and talented writers who are not hesitant to voice an opinion but diligent to support those opinions with firm, fair, and rational argumentation. This is the raison d’etre of Modern Diplomacy.

Our Board is comprised of distinguished thinkers, analysts, academics, diplomats, and entrepreneurs from all over the globe. These include former Ministers and Secretary-Generals from some of the most prestigious European bodies. Modern Diplomacy prides itself, in its board and its writers, for being politically, generationally, and geographically diverse, expansive, and exceptionally well-balanced.

Disclaimer: The views expressed within Modern Diplomacy are solely those of the authors in their private capacity and do not in any way represent or reflect the views of the Modern Diplomacy, its Advisory and Editorial Boards, Sponsors, Partners, or Affiliates.
