This talk draws upon Dr Ayşe Zarakol’s current book project Before Defeat: Rethinking the Decline of the East & the End of the Western Order to urge a rethinking of the history of Eurasian international relations from the thirteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Dr Zarakol will argue that such a rethinking of IR history can help us better theorise the concept of decline, as well as the sources of macro-level change in the international order. The talk will conclude with some preliminary thoughts from Dr Zarakol’s next project which explores the relationship between systemic change and political centralization. Both projects are aimed at better understanding the current challenges to the international order through historical analogy.
