Call for proposals: Geoculture and geopolitics: What interplay for soft power inter-communication(s) in a globalized world? special issue of Arab Journal of International Law. Deadline: June 1, 2021 (for working title & intention only).
Historically, cultural ideologies in world communication and public relations have usually bred their own undoing. Indeed, cultural factors and dimensions are resorted to explain emerging political and economic emerging phenomena. It is high time culture were brought into international studies. Generally, international relations (IRs) were envisaged through two models – notably geopolitics and geoeconomics. However, as the international society is marked by the cultural turn in the politics of international and inter- civilizational relations (Tibi, 2012 & Petito, 2009), IRs are approached from a third prism – geoculture. Geoculture is a new emerging paradigm that addresses the influence of culture or, more broadly, civilization in shaping the cultural and political discourses of intercultural and international relations.
