Theory and Practice: Special Issue on the Changing International Relations after the Covid-19 Pandemic: Managing the Growing Gap between National and Multilateral Responses


Prof. dr. Andreja Jaklič from the Centre of International Relations was a guest-editor of the fourth issue of Theory of Practice (TIP Journal), which addresses the changes in international relations after the Covid-19 pandemic, and the growing gap between national and multilateral responses. Analyzing the responses of different actors in international relations include insights into the effectiveness of state aid and anti-crisis measures, the revitalization of diplomacy and consular activity during the first wave of the pandemic, enterprises’ responses and changes in internationalization strategies, the resilience and structural changes in global value chains, the relevance of grand theories of integration for progress in the EU, key challenges in changes in selected EU policies, strengthened EU actorness in the Western Balkans and the lessons of developed countries for developing countries’ crisis-exit strategies.

Contributions in this issue link the experience from the past global recession and the current crisis with a view to learning and better understanding. Although most of the crises cannot be prevented, we can overcome through planned learning and behaviour. It is precisely global systemic crises that constantly teach us how important the ability of (international and domestic) cooperation is.

The papers from the issue are freely available here.
