GIACCAGLIA, Clarisa. Traditional, Emerging and Re-Emerging Powers: Ambiguous, yet Pragmatic Relationships. Foro int [online]. 2017, vol.57, n.2, pp.422-459. ISSN 0185-013X.

This paper reflects on the role that the emerging powers have developed in different spheres of global decision-making. Firstly, it describes the current international order, and conceptualizes the category of emerging power, as derived from that of middle power. Next, the paper focuses on three fields of global governance: commercial sphere (WTO), financial sphere (World Bank, FMI, G-20), and environmental sphere (summits on climate change). In this way it aims to establish whether the role of the emerging powers has led to modifications in international forums for decision-making, and how the relationships between traditional, emerging and re-emerging powers have been reconfigured.

Keywords : emerging power; international order; middle powers; multilateral spheres of negotiation; BRICS.
