Distinctive due to explicit and systematically developed links between international relations (IR) and related disciplines, this book addresses global and regional interactions and the complex policy problems that often characterise this agenda. Such enhanced communication is crucial for improving the capacity of IR to engage with concrete issues that today are of high policy relevance for international organisations, states, diplomats, mediators and humankind in general. Whilst the authors do not reject the present IR, they offer a wider research agenda with new directions intended not only for those IR scholars who are unsatisfied with the analytical power of the current discipline, but also for those working on 'international', 'foreign', 'global' or 'interregional' issues in other disciplines and fields of research. In this instance they pay particular attention to linking up with peace research, international political economy (IPE) and cultural political economy (CPE), sociology, political geography, development studies, linguistics, cultural studies, environmental studies and energy research, gender studies, and traditions of area studies.

'Sophisticated and wide ranging, this collection will broaden the reader's sense of the possibilities of international studies. Aalto, Harle and Moisio provide compelling evidence for the insights of interdisciplinary approaches in diverse global contexts, from feminist IR and African studies to environmental change and the global financial crisis.' David Long, Carleton University, Canada '... an innovative collection of well-argued essays. At its core is a strong message about how research on international studies ought to be undertaken, and the importance of engaging with related disciplines such that policy considerations are addressed intelligently and holistically. Although scholars from several academic communities are represented here, the three editors and many other contributors are based in Finland, reminding the reader of the significant contribution this community of researchers has made to the many faces of international studies.' Tim Dunne, University of Queensland, Australia 'All the contributors are committed to interdisciplinarity and identify opportunities to widen IR. They also take a concrete stance to direct their choice of cases that represent the analyses in the best possible way... Overall, [this] innovative volume, with its strong message that interna-tional relations research demands interdisciplinarity, will remind the field's opinion-formers of the importance of the third period of IR studies. [This book] will interest IR scholars and stu-dents and all who work on interdisciplinary studies of international, global and regional issues.' Millenium 'Although there are countless edited books about global issues, this one is original not only because the co-editors are scholars from Finland, but mainly because the authors focus on the interdisciplinary dimensions of research and innovate in their conceptualisation of international studies... In sum, this innovative collection opens new doors but is not definitive; other open-minded scholars could benefit from the neo-disciplinarity perspectives and doctoral candidates could be inspired by this very interesting framework. But Global and Regional Problems confirms again that new directions and frameworks in transdisciplinarity research often come from Europe.'
