Elena Pavlova on the concept of resilience and explanations of power
Senior research fellow Elena Pavlova has co-authored an article "From Civilian and Normative Power to Resilience" (in Russian) with Tatiana Romanova. The article was published in the special issue "Politics of Power and Power in Politics" in the journal "Mezhdunarodnye Protsessy" (International Trends).
Abstract: The 2016 EU’s Global Strategy introduced the concept of resilience. The goal of this article is to identify continuity and change between resilience, on the one hand, and civilian (soft) power and normative power (two concepts that previously formed the ideational basis of the EU’s foreign relations), on the other hand. Three aspects are compared: historical context of how three concepts developed; the role of values and interests; and correlation between internal and external for the EU’s processes in the articulation and realisation of the concepts.
