Description:

From economic growth to cultural exports, the global distribution of power is shifting from "the West" to the rest of the world. With the rise of countries like Russia and China come concerns over the future of global business and security norms.

This discussion will address the potential threats and foreign policy innovations that could direct the rise of the rest. This workshop builds on a panel discussion held at the Nixon Center last summer titled "A World Without the West."

Panelists will include Nick Gvosdev, Editor of The National Interest and Senior Fellow in Strategic Studies at The Nixon Center; Harry Harding, George Washington University Professor of International Affairs; Flynt Leverett, Senior Fellow and Director of the Geopolitics of Energy Initiative at the New America Foundation; and David Speedie, Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Council. The discussion will be moderated by GPI Program Director Devin Stewart.

This event is part of the Carnegie Council's Workshops for Ethics in Business, sponsored by Booz & Company's strategy+business magazine and Merck. Support also comes from New York University's Center for Global Affairs.
