The global distribution of power is shifting. Newly rising states such as Brazil, China and India are attempting to establish themselves in positions of influence in the contemporary world order. In recent years, as international institutions grow in prevalence and influence, they have increasingly become central arenas for international contestation. The dramatic rise of Japan after World War II, for example, raises an important question: how was its large, exogenous shift in underlying economic power accommodated across institutional contexts? Why do some institutions change flexibly, while others successfully resist or fall to the wayside? Based on his recent book, ‚ÄúRenegotiating the World Order: Institutional Change in International Relations‚ÄĚ, Phillip Lipscy of the University of Toronto examines how international institutions evolve as countries seek to renegotiate the international order.
