As the West retrenches and new powers emerge, students of international relations are well positioned to address an outstanding question: How to thrive in a multipolar world? The question—and the answers which we bring to bear—resonate beyond geopolitics. This is because the task of living together in diversity is arguably the greatest analytical as well as normative challenge facing world politics more broadly (Fisher-Onar, Pearce, and Keyman 2018).
