Published almost exactly twenty years after the publication of the first issue of the journal, Volume 49 of IAPSS Politikon contains five original contributions to Political Science, International Relations and European Studies.

Carol-Ann Rouillard and Mireille Lalancette argue for improvements in political representation via an analysis of media speeches on gender parity in Canada. Esther Ng K. H. sets out to demonstrate that a better understanding of state decisions to retain its existing practices rather than adopt new ones can be gained via the concept of ontological security. Building on insights from deliberation theory, Oxana Pimenova delves into the subsidiarity principle in the EU as an opportunity for enhanced dialogue and understanding between EU and national institutions, provided that some improvements to the principle are implemented. Fernando Ursine Braga Silva provides preliminary empirical support for a new explanation for the split of the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ). Paul Fricker presents an up-to-date picture of the cooperative as well as conflictual patterns of interaction between China and the US in Djibouti.
