Emerging Powers, Emerging Markets, Emerging Societies: Global Responses

  • Steen Fryba Christensen

Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


In Chapter 1, we presented our understanding of the “great transformations” taking place in international relations and in the international political economy. These transformations are also creating responses at national level in terms of economic/market orientation, political alliance, development strategy, and so on. One of the book’s key objectives is to provide a good framework for understanding the relationship between the rise of emerging powers and the existing world order, with an empirical focus on worldwide responses.
