Abstract

The international system has grown more complex, encompassing a wide range of actors apart from states. This has arguably increased the number and strength of relations of these actors not only with states but also with each other. However, how these relations (such as between the UN, NATO, the EU, the Council of Europe and other inter- and non-governmental organizations) look like, how they work in practice/in concrete situations, to what extent they can be called ‘political’ and how effective they are in solving global issues, remains largely unexplored. The goal of this Panel is to bring together contributions that address the nature of these relations. An important contextual variable to be taken into consideration in each analysis in the Panel is the emerging discourse about crises, political and other, that are highlighted specifically in global media. The main question is whether the discourse about ‘crises’ has changed something in the decision-making practices at the level of international organizations, particularly the interactions between them. Contributions will address cases studies regarding European Union integration in the context of internal crises as well as EU in external affairs, analyzing the effectiveness of its actions in solving global issues that emerge from the Middle East and pinpointing how positions and decision making practices have been shaped by the developments of internal and external crises. Furthermore, papers will tackle the inter-parliamentary dimension of EU and ASEAN in the context of reaching the sustainability goals and will also touch upon.
