Introduction

Exploring the Implications of Local and Regional Conflicts (2024) is designed for policymakers and professionals in current affairs and security studies. It serves as a valuable tool for understanding and tackling violent conflicts, ranging from the War in Yemen (2014-), the Civil War in Syria (2012-), the Third Nagorno Karabakh Conflict (2023), the war in South Sudan (2013-2020), Mali (2023-) Sudan (2023-), to Israel's War Against Hamas (2023), all of which have significantly shaped the global architecture of power. This edition equips readers with the knowledge needed to navigate the complexities of the global stage and contribute to a more peaceful and stable future. It is an essential resource for courses in geoeconomics, geopolitics, conflict management, and international relations theory as it explores the roots of competition and cooperation among states, drawing on geoeconomics, geopolitics, security studies, and humanitarian perspectives.

Objective

Exploring the Implications of Local and Regional Conflicts (2024) aims to provide policymaking individuals with the fundamental tools to understand the post-cold war global power architecture from theoretical and analytical perspectives. It is dedicated to professionals interested in current affairs and security studies interested in dealing with the violent conflict after 1991. It approaches regional conflicts of global importance from the perspective of geoeconomics, geopolitics, security studies, and humanitarian perspectives. It investigates the roots of competition and cooperation among states through the prism of broader debates launched by Francis Fukuyama in his The End of History, Samuel Huntington’s Clash of Civilizations, Zbigniew Brzezinski’s The Grand Chessboard, Kenneth Waltz’s Balance of Power Theory, Stephen Walt’s Balance of Threat Theory, Joseph Nye’s notion of Soft Power and Kissinger’s Diplomacy.

Target Audience

This text is designed for use in a wide variety of courses: geoeconomics, geopolitics, war studies, conflict management, international relations theory, international political theory, applied ethics, moral philosophy, and experimental philosophy. It aspires to provide a valuable new contribution to these rapidly developing fields of research. Subsequently, this project is dedicated to everyone interested in expanding their explanatory horizons and challenging their preconceived notions of truth in the realm of international relations.
