Popis Uncertainty is an inseparable element of global politics. From the collapse of the Soviet Union to the 1997 and 2008 financial crises to the Arab Uprisings and the COVID-19 pandemic, assessments of many events with lasting consequences on the global order have begun with: Why didn’t we see this coming? New shocks to human and environmental systems ripple through in unexpected directions and scales. Yet, international relations scholars have devoted relatively little attention to examining what uncertainty is, how we can (and should) approach it, and how its different forms affect political actors’ identities, interests, and behaviors in distinct ways. This book contributes to systematic research on the concept of uncertainty in global politics, with possible practical implications in policy and elsewhere. The underlying question is: How do we best study, understand, and address uncertainty in global politics? The chapters explore the processes associated with different forms of uncertainty in the context of pressing contemporary challenges in global politics, covering topics linked to conflict and security, domestic politics, foreign policy, international law, environmental issues, pandemic governance, potential and possible future problems that we currently have a limited grasp of, and knowledge production itself.
