Both the events and political decisions that took place half a century ago impacted the beginning of the 21st century. This is reflected, for example, in the Year of Africa, the decline of the colonial empires, democratic transitions in Central and Eastern Europe, a significant increase in the importance of non-state actors, the new order formed by the hegemon and great powers after the collapse of the bipolar system… These are merely several factors acknowledged as the genesis of the contemporary international scene.
Classical Geopolitics perceives world politics as the rivalry of superpowers and pragmatic interests on the international chessboard. On the other hand, Critical Geopolitics takes into consideration the significance of culture, words and the images of state created in the minds of foreign mass recipients. Power is one of the essential issues of international relations. However, its definition is questionable – it consists of so many factors that it is impossible to create a rigid definition. A similar situation is observed when attempting to assess the globalization issue – the processes change depending on both the region and time. Moreover, which actors – state or non-state – play an important role in the world politics?
This issue anticipates the creation of a multi-threaded exchange of views on the geopolitics of the contemporary world, with special emphasis on the power and actors in international relations – the analysis of phenomena, theoretical and empirical approaches, taking both global and regional perspectives into account.
