Большая Евразия: концептуализация понятия и место во внешней политике России

Вопросы географии. 2019. № 148. С. 16-53.

The formation of ‘Greater Eurasia’ is undoubtedly one of the most important narratives of the international relations development in the first half of the 21st century. However, there is no consensus in the scientific and expert community regarding its meaning. The best way to define Greater Eurasia seems to consider it a regional or macroregional international community constructed through interaction. It is based not on history or civilizational proximity or even on the number of economic projects and interdependence, but on the special quality and intensity of political relations between its constituent states, first of all between Russia and China. The formation of this community fully fits into the main modern trends in international relations: increasing uncertainty and disorder at the global level, the formation of flexible coalitions, political regionalization and re-sovereignization along with the growth of global interdependence. In this regard, the most efficient scholarly tools for understanding ‘Greater Eurasia’ are offered by constructivism and the English school of international relations, especially the scientific heritage of H. Bull.
