This article was published on

Foreign Policy Working Group convener Marianna Charountaki is editing a new series on Non-State Actors in International Relations alongside Daniela Irrera.

The series addresses the role of non-state actors (NSAs) in International Relations in various policy fields and through different theoretical perspectives, and will be published through Springer.

From its inception, the Westphalian State was the dominant political arrangement and most important actor within the international system. At the beginning of the 20th century, new and different actors have emerged, imposing their requirements in the international arena and demanding to be involved. With increasing globalization, the erosion of borders, and weakening of traditional political norms and powers, the role of NSAs continues to grow and so does the need to conceptualize and study them.

The series editors are now seeking book proposals from interested parties. If you are interested please do send your proposal to Lorraine Klimowich: You can also find more information and a flyer for the series on the Springer website.
