Centre for International Politics and Law (CIPL)

About the Centre

The Centre for International Politics and Law is dedicated to advance interdisciplinary research and seeks scholarly exchanges with research organizations around the world. CIPL is the Centre focusing exclusively on the interface between politics and economics in International Relations. Over the years, Economic issues became the key variable in determining state place in the international system. It constitutes an important source of political influence in international diplomacy. Scholars often focus on International Politics without much attention to International Economics and vice versa. Sometimes, Political Scientists don't look beyond the nation-state while Economists often overlook the state's interests. Here, the interdisciplinary approach becomes significant to understand the mutual influence between the two distinct disciplines. A nation-states' political action clearly affect international trade and vice versa. Today, state and market have a mutual interaction which conceptualizes the notion Geo-economics. The oil embargo forced policy-makers to shift the world system from geopolitics to Geo-economics. Thus, the Centre will shed light on the synthesis of economic and political study, which is defined as International Political Economy. In addition, CPIL will provide a deep analysis of legal issues pertaining to international trade, which could enhance the participation of India in International trade.

Objective

The primary objective of the Centre is to provide a greater understanding of Geo-economics in an interdependent nature of world politics. The CIPL offers a stimulating research environment for students and researchers to examine critically the complex issues of international politics and law, focusing on global economic challenges.

Dr. Sandeep Tripathi, Assistant Professor at Institute of Legal Studies and Research, introduced the CIPL’s objective and research programme. Introducing the Centre, Dr. Tripahi pointed out how the economic issues became the key variable in determining the state’s place in emerging new world order. The CPIL will focus on the interface between politics and economy.

The programme was moderated by Prof. Rajan Kumar, who flagged up the issues of international order. He pointed out how the Post-Cold War world order has shifted into Post-Covid world order. How India has to face the huge impact of Covid Pandemic. He said that Covid is something that has impacted everyone, including state, community and individual. By quoting to prominent thinker Joseph Nye, he explained that covid has accentuated the fault line which was already there in the International system. Prof. Kumar wanted to know from the distinguished panellist why states have failed to manage this crisis and why US is trying to reverse the liberal world order. A most distinguished panellist Ambassador Vishnu Prakash pointed out that the Covid impact has been universal and profoundly destabilizing the world order. He segmented its impact into three levels, i.e. Individual, state and international. At the state level, all states are looser and China emerged as the biggest looser. The Recession has turned into depression. At the individual level, there is a gradual transition from real to virtual. At international level, protectionism is being promoted through the prism of ultra-nationalism. The global trade is going to shrink.

Panellist from Russia, Dr.Kirill Sablin articulated the covid impact as macro level or the level of the state, and micro level as behaviour of individuals. Each level is characterized with incentive It has impacted people at different levels. Illustrating covid’s impact on economic development at own city Kemerovo, he said that businesses are being closed, demands are the decreasing. Dr. Sablin pointed out that Covid has accelerated protectionism and ultra-nationalism, and Russia has used it as political influence. Explaining the Post-Covid phase, he believes that the world order has shifted in a unique social eco-system which (e.g. Wearing masks, gloves and new practices in higher education). We are realizing this new practice in even in teaching mode.

Gla

Dr. Bappaditya Mukherjee, Former faculty at the State University of New York, pointed out that how democratic politics are the challenge to multilateral world order. The leaders of a democratic country are trying to control the liberal world order through different narratives such as nationalism, religious orthodoxy, etc. He said that the China’s business environment continues to be hostile. Dr. Bhartendu Singh, Director, Finance Commission, Govt of India, pointed out that Chinese assertion is more visible in Asia-Pacific region where it clearly aims for a Chinese led regional order, visible in initiatives like the BRI. Whether it is industry, trade, military or simply power politics through soft mechanism, China dominates the scene. Most of these trends are part and parcel of China’s march to superpower status and would continue, with or without COVID. Thus, COVID would at best be an ephemeral moment in China’s endeavour to dominate the world politics. China has successfully used diversionary tactics through raking up of conflicts and controversies around its periphery during covid era.

Quoting to PM Modi, Prof. Kumar said that India has a deep historical connection with South East Asia which is the centre of Indo-pacific concept. India differs from US, China and Russian perspective of Indo-Pacific concept. The South China Sea is crucial just because five trillion trade takes place through this route which has become the hotspot of conflict due to the contested influence of South Asian countries including India. Prof Kumar also agrees that Joe Biden will reverse some Trump’s policies which will engage China too. Some change in Indo-pacific is likely to take place. He pointed out New Delhi has valid reasons not join the in RCEP. India, however, should take a nuanced position keeping in view of China’s dominance in the region.

A distinguished panellist Commodore Anil Jai Singh underscored that maritime domain is becoming increasingly important in the current geopolitical scenario. Commodore Singh highlighted that 21st Century global order will be shaped by the events that will take place in the Indo-pacific. Most of the oil flow form Indian Ocean, 60 % GDP is generated in the region, 60% global population is located in the region, South Asian economies are emerging which all created a new narratives as Indo-pacific. The indo-pacific has a very distinct maritime orientation. Indian and Pacific Ocean has become one single strategic entity due to interdependent to each other. He highlighted the china factor.

Concept Note

The liberal international Order, established after the Second World War, faces potential challenges from its main driver US. The US hegemonic leadership is being challenged by the resurgent Russia and China. In the last few years, China emerged as the principle threat to the supremacy of United States and its role as the global hegemon. The rise of Trump doctrine, the Brexit vote, the resurgence of populism around the world, the decline in multilateralism, and trade protectionism have produced anxieties about the decline of a Liberal International Order. The rise of China’s authoritarian capitalist model, proliferation of nationalist politics, technology-induced disruptions, the resurgence of zero-sum geopolitics, and rejections of economic openness, have led some to question whether the roots of liberal international order is in a state of terminal decline.

These are all beginning to shake the foundations of liberal world order. International Organisation such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) was built to promote the liberalisation of international trade for the global economy and economies of individual countries. But growing protectionist and unilateral actions of the nation states have threatened the basic foundation of the WTO. The former US President, Donald Trump’s declaration on globalization- as a less value to be cherished- has led to theoretical and analytical discourses on post liberal international order. The victory of Joe Biden as the president of the US has raised expectations about the restoration of some of the values of liberalism, but how far can he sustain the momentum needs to be seen. It is against this background that the Centre for International Politics and Law (CIPL) proposes to organize a two-day International Conference on the theme, “Liberal International Order and its Challenges”, at the Institute of Legal Studies and Research, GLA University, Mathura, India on 22-23 March 2021. The following themes are proposed for deliberation:

  • Liberal International Order: History, evolution and decay
  • Resurgence of China and Russia: Do they threaten the existing order?
  • International Law and Trade War
  • India and the Liberal International Order
  • Globalization: Key challenges
  • Challenges of Liberal International Order: Hyper-nationalism, populism, protectionism and pandemic
  • Role of international organizations in sustaining liberal international order
