October 5, 2021 – October 6, 2021

This year marks a decade of International Conference on Business, International Relations, and Diplomacy (ICOBIRD). The conference has been organised by the Department of International Relations at Bina Nusantara (BINUS) University as part of BINUS Joint International Conference (BJIC). The year of 2021 also marks a year on the COVID-19 pandemic, a health crisis that has brought multiple effects on almost all lines of international politics.

On one hand, illiberal turn and the rise of populism in democracy are troubling developments that occur in multiple countries today. On the other hand, public diplomacy and foreign policy had been changing to adapt with these shared challenges in mitigating the spread of the disease. International business chains, in particular, have been disrupted due to lockdown policies in numerous countries. Furthermore, regionalism and global health governance are under scrutiny as to how these forums should ensure access to vaccines. The global architecture might require countries to change their strategic approach in dealing with pandemic as a human security threat.

With this background, the 10th International Conference on Business, International Relations, and Diplomacy (ICOBIRD) will be held online under the theme “Surviving the Pandemic and the Shift in Global Architecture”. This conference offers rigorous and readable examinations of a wide range of international politics which are both of academic interest and policy relevance. It invites authors across the globe to submit their papers which engage with ICOBIRD’s core theme and topics.
