Political Economy of Soft Power

Economic and Political Studies Special Issue Call for Papers

Deadline: 1 July 2020

Economic and Political Studies (EPS), an ESCI and Scopus listed journal hosted by Renmin University of China and published by Taylor & Francis Group, calls for papers for a special issue on “Political Economy of Soft Power”.

Soft power has been deemed important and pursued by many countries with different yet similar strategies. Despite its popularity, most analysis on soft power is qualitative, unable to offer clear guidelines and assessment. Recently, quantitative approaches to soft power begin to prevail. To join this effort, Economic and Political Studies invites contributions to a new special issue on “Political Economy of Soft Power”. Preferred papers contain quantitative analysis of soft power. Perspectives from all different disciplines are welcomed. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Public diplomacy
  • Culture institutes
  • Hallyu and Cool Japan
  • Measurement of soft power
  • Economic impacts of soft power
  • Political impacts of soft power
