Emilian Kavalski is Associate Professor of Global Studies at the Institute for Social Justice, Australian Catholic University, and the Editor for Ashgate's ‘Rethinking Asia and International Relations’ series. He is the author of three books, including Central Asia and the Rise of Normative Powers: Contextualizing the Security Governance of the EU, China, and India (Bloomsbury, 2012), and the editor of several volumes, most recently World Politics at the Edge of Chaos: Reflections on Complexity and Global Life (State University of New York Press, 2015). His current research explores the encounter of International Relations with life in the Anthropocene, especially the engagement with nonhuman agency; and the nascent Asian normative orders and the ways in which they confront, complement and transform established traditions, norms and institutions. Emilian contends that in both these areas the application of Complexity Thinking has important implications for the way global life is approached, explained and understood.
