More than three decades after the Cold War, international institutions have yet to cope with pressing problems, emerging challenges, and regional and international conflicts. Against the backdrop of an unraveling international order, deepening humanitarian crises, and an uptick in violence, Turkey, under President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s leadership, has advocated international cooperation to find solutions. At the same time, the country has adopted a more proactive foreign policy with an eye toward ending long-standing international disputes while avoiding the trap of unilateralism.

International Injustice: Humanitarian Intervention and the Abuse of War Crimes Trials

Author: 

Szamuely, Szamuely, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

George Szamuely, Ph.D., is senior research fellow at the Global Policy Institute in London and author of Bombs for Peace: NATO’s Humanitarian War on Yugoslavia (2014). He has taught at universities in New York, Budapest, and Belgrade and worked at the Times Literary Supplement and National Law Journal and contributed to many publications, including the Daily Telegraph, the Wall Street Journal, New York Press, The American Scholar, The National Interest, Orbis, and Counterpunch.

International Injustice: Humanitarian Intervention and the Abuse of War Crimes Trials is a critical examination of Western military humanitarian interventions, with a particular focus on subsequent Western-organized war crimes trials that serve as post-facto justifications for the resort to force. International Injustice analyzes the NATO-led humanitarian intervention in Yugoslavia during the 1990s, an intervention that to this day continues to be cited as a successful exemplar of how to use force to achieve humanitarian outcomes.

Cyber Security Meets National Security: International Perspectives on Digital Era Threats (St. James’s Series in World Affairs)

Author: 

Kent, Neil, University of Cambridge & Irina du Quenoy, Georgetown University (Editors)

Today more than ever, the line between national security and cyber security is becoming increasingly erased. As recent attacks on US infrastructure show (for example, the oil pipeline hack of 2021), nontraditional threats ranging from hacking for the purposes of extracting ransom to terrorist communications online are emerging as central to national threat assessment.

Book CoverAntisemitism in the twenty-first century remains a major threat to Jewish communities around the world, and a potent challenge to the liberal international order. But it can so often be a more hidden form of racism, relying on codes, images, cues, and ciphers embedded in the cultural mythology of prejudice against Jews.

Crowdfunding in the United States and European Union: Markets, Platforms, Critics, and Future Prospects

Author: 

Liakopoulou, Irini, Oklahoma State University

This original book is the first serious study investigating the crowdfunding phenomenon, which has developed deep meaning for various stakeholders benefiting from this funding collection mechanism and its innovative new role, especially in the processes of business creation and spread of entrepreneurship. The actors involved -- promoters, supporters, and the platforms through which the campaigns are launched -- constitute an ecosystem in continuous evolution, which has grown dramatically and allows for its further development.

Within Tweeting Distance: How States Use Twitter Diplomacy

Author: 

Suwwan, Noor

Credentials: 

She graduated from Jordan’s University of Science and Technology. She holds a master’s degree in international relations from the University of Wollongong, in Dubai, and a postgraduate degree in communications and marketing from the University of Middlesex in Dubai.

One of the most peculiar byproducts of media globalization is the creation of audiences close by but out of reach, and far away but within reach. Within Tweeting Distance is a study of one of the most compelling emerging subfields at the crossroads of the fields of international relations and communications: Twitter Diplomacy. Noor Suwwan’s groundbreaking new book proposes a new theoretical classification framework for Twitter Diplomacy and applies it to four Arab state-actors.

Book CoverTwenty years after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, we can now see that the War on Terror profoundly affected Western self-understanding and the secular liberal image it sought to project onto a global canvas at what was widely assumed to be the end of history. The dramatic change in awareness that 9/11 brought about was particularly vivid, this book maintains, in the media that sustained and displayed the West’s self-image.
