Political Change

Panorama Insights into Asian and European Affairs

Also available in Deutsch

In recent years, domestic politics in both Europe and Asia have arguably become less predictable and prone to sudden, unexpected changes. Although domestic volatility is not a new phenomenon in either region, contemporary drivers are analogous and may be a reflection of a new era, with significant implications for both domestic and foreign policies.

In this issue of our journal, authors reflect on contemporary changes in the domestic political architectures in both Europe and Asia and analyse causes, drivers, and impacts in order to get a better understanding of political renewal. Whether this is for better or worse is dependent in personal interpretation; that both regions undergo significant political change, however, is undisputable.
