The period we live in has been characterized as the end of history, empire, the nation state, neo-liberalism, and the end of the world system. Endings necessitate new beginnings. The purpose of this study is to illuminate what directions to expect the world to move in considering the complexity, increasing interdependence and rapid change that has become part of our lives.

Éva BÓKAEurope in Search of Unity in Diversity. Can Personalist Federalism and Multilevelism Manage Diversity?
This essay investigates how European federalist political thinkers, believing in the idea of a peaceful world federation, developed personalism, multilevelism, and subsidiarity as a means of protecting diversity in Europe during the 19th and 20th century, in opposition to anti-federalist conservative power policies and classical liberal capitalist market economy expansion.The essay presents how the Pan-European Movement elaborated the federalist ideas on personal freedom, federalism and multilevelism. It also deals with European integration as a manager of diversity: more precisely it investigates how the EU, as an intergovernmental and new, supranational regional union of states, based on multilevelism and subsidiarity, protects diversity (“unity in diversity"), and how this can influence new regionalism in the world.

Murat GÜLThe ‘German Question’. A Democratic and Peaceful Solution
The central geographical orientation of Germany in Europe has vested new responsibilities to the country for the future development of the continent. Moreover, Germany as the most powerful state in the middle of Europe has started to play a crucial role in the execution and reconstruction of international politics. The construction of the ‘United States of Europe’ within which Germany ‘should’ play the leading role and realize ‘Europeanization of Germany’ have been supported by the German foreign policy-makers. In addition to this intra-integration in Western Europe, integration of Eastern and Western Europe has been a primary foreign policy objective for the German administrations. With this objective, responsibility and her huge economic and political capabilities, Germany has been considered as one of the ‘engines’ of European  integration, probably the most important one.
