  • Introduction

    The reflections on liquid power is a discussion little worked by literature in the region. Interdisciplinary analytics are needed to understand the phenomena of asymmetric power in a chaotic world of flows. The new logics and dynamics of interrelation between the different actors in the international system must be researched with rigor, because they account for the new environments in different fields and the challenges for global governance. Power asymmetries, rapid mutation of threats and emergence of risks require the development of new preventive and prospective analytics to study the complex phenomena of today's world.

    Aims and Scope:

    1. Power
    2. Liquid society
    3. Global World
    4. Critical Theories
    5. New actors
    6. Dromology
