Bilateral relations between distant countries

The drive towards modernization, the birth of modern states, the diplomacy, the communication revolution, the advance of knowledge, the modern tourism have all encouraged to a various degree the encounters between distant countries and peoples to the extent that diplomatic relations between them have started, economic and ideological exchanges have progressed and the mutual knowledge has increased. Regardless the increasing number of academic works dealing with bilateral relations between such countries, there is very little research on the methodology concerning this topic to help researches approaching their study-cases. This issue of Valahian Journal of Historical Studies starts from this observation and aims by approaching both theoretically and analytically this topic to contribute to a better understanding of the stakes involved in researching bilateral relations. Therefore, VJHS encourages transdisciplinary contributions assessing topics such as:

  • The literature concerning bilateral relations between distant countries
  • Defining distant countries/nations: geographically, culturally, socially etc.
  • The methodology of research concerning bilateral relations between distant countries
  • The birth of modern states and the setting up of bilateral relations between distant countries

  • Trade and exchanges between distant countries
