Think Tanks, Foreign Policy, and National, Regional, and Global Politics

  • James G. McGann


The emergence of new powers in the past decade has opened up a number of new fields of academic and policy inquiry regarding the role of these newly empowered state actors in the international environment, in the management of the global order, and in the recalibration of international relations. Similarly, it has brought about new, challenging conditions for these emerging powers themselves to assert their position and voice within international institutions and, more generally, an ever more complex global setting. The challenge, as many of the chapters in this book have demonstrated, is rendered even harder by the simultaneous need to claim a more active international role while at the same time dealing with the numerous internal political and social transformations that most of these countries are witnessing, and with the regional dynamics in which these emerging powers are involved as stakeholders.
