Recent transformations in world politics urge scholars, practitioners and states to rethink their concepts, practices and policies through which they make sense of the world. From macro-level to micro-level, the world is experiencing immense changes in the way scholars reconsider their theories, practitioners rearrange their priorities and states readjust themselves to new settings. Everyday struggles of individuals and groups are becoming global by transcending business-as-usual practices as well as policies. The conference welcomes theoretical and empirical studies that appreciate the idea of acquiring comprehensive knowledge of various aspects of world politics beyond specific boundaries. The central goal of the conference is to develop a fruitful platform for studies that appreciate the plurality/diversity of actors, topic and spaces by applying various methods of research to world politics.
