    Dissociation via Alternative Institutions: The Establishment of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and US-China Conflict

    How does the nature of a dissociation conflict affect its management by parties on opposite sides and, consequently, the interstate relations between the parties?

    The Paradox of Competing Connectivity Strategies in Asia

    Konkurrierende Konnektivitätsstrategien sind ein Kernbestandteil der Geopolitik des 21. Jahrhunderts. Die Autoren zeigen die vielschichtigen Konsequenzen der Konnektivitätsstrategien auf, indem sie eine konzeptionelle Unterscheidung zwischen zwei Formen des Wettbewerbs zwischen Konnektivitätsprojekten vorschlagen.

    Drifting Apart: International Institutions in Crisis and the Management of Dissociation Processes (DRIFTS)

    Brexit, US withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement under President Trump and the demise of security cooperation between Russia and the West are reminders that international cooperation is fragile. States dissociate themselves from international institutions – either by formally withdrawing their membership, by ignoring their commitments or by creating alternative institutions. The DRIFTS project, coordinated by HSFK, explores the tensions between states that result from these dissociation processes.

    Legitimate Multipolarity

    Global governance institutions work differently under conditions of multipolarity. In a first step, in this project we investigate the legitimacy deficits of global governance institutions under conditions of multipolarity. In a second step, we analyse possible solutions to such problems put forward in rising powers’ foreign policy discourses. Legitimate Multipolarity adopts an empirical approach to the study of legitimacy and contributes to a global understanding of multilateralism’s merits, pitfalls – and prospects for reform.
