The Shape of the World to Come: Charting the Geopolitics of a New Century
An Evening with author LAURENT COHEN-TANUGI and discussant and moderator DAVID A. ANDELMAN
Monday, October 27
6:00 p.m. -7:30 p.m.
For better and for worse, globalization has become the most powerful force shaping the world's geopolitical landscape, whether it has meant integration or fragmentation, peace or war. The future partly depends on how new economic giants such as China, India, and others make use of their power. It also depends on how well Western democracies can preserve their tenuous hold on leadership, cohesion, and the pursuit of the common good. Offering the most comprehensive analysis of world politics to date, author Laurent Cohen-Tanugi takes on globalization's cheerleaders and detractors and suggests how we should approach our new multipolar world.
