The inaugural edition of the Journal of Global Faultlines, tentatively due for release in September 2013, will be focused on critically analyzing two key terms, Global Faultlines and Global Shifts. These two interrelated terms may very well prompt any number of corollary questions such as, but not limited to, the following:
- What will replace the Old Order?
- How can Washington protect its interests in the new global era?
- How much international disruption will attend the transition from the old to the new?
- How should the behavior of new Emerging Powers be interpreted?
- What impact will these Emerging Powers have on the existing global engagements with traditional partners?
- Whether the rise of the Emerging Powers is an opportunity for or threat to the future of global development?
- What opportunities does engagement with the new Emerging Powers from the Global South provide to social movements and other grassroots organizations to advance their interests and those of the oppressed by playing one global power against another?
-How will the Emerging Powers respond if their economic interests are threatened?
- Is it accurate to assume that the Emerging Powers on the UN Security Council will act as a collective and will they put their group interests above their national interests and regional identities?
- Does or should the rising economic power of the Emerging Economies mean an end to the North–South framing of global power structure?
- What is the role of human agency to play a part in an increasingly interdependent world?
- As economic power shifts to the Emerging Powers, will politics follow?
