Since its foundation in 1996, the ASERI Postgraduate School of Economics and International Relations has become an intellectual breeding ground for a new generation of scholars and officials interested in the international arena. On the occasion of its tenth anniversary, this book offers the reader some of the key issues that have emerged in the scientific debate over this period. In light of the radical changes arising out of the end of the Cold War, and again on the aftermath of 9/11, traditional problems now overlap with new trends, which have further augmented the complexity of international phenomena. In particular, questions such as the future of globalization, peace and the international order, the dilemmas of European integration, ethics and the safeguarding of human rights, require urgent answers. In the face of such pressing, yet alluring challenges, the essays gathered here discuss a variety of issues, using a multi-disciplinary perspective that ranges from economics to law and political science. What emerges is a complex analysis, in which contemporary trends are accompanied by a sober discussion of outlooks for the future.
