The Shape of the World to Come

With Laurent Cohen-Tanugi

Friday, October 24, 2008 03:00 PM to 05:00 PM

 

Description:
Laurent Cohen-Tanugi will discuss his new book, The Shape of the World to Come: Charting the Geopolitics of a New Century. He argues that economic globalization exists in a complex dialectic with the traditional geopolitics it has, ironically, helped to revive. This tension has created an ambivalent world that requires democracies to operate in two realms: the realm of economic integration and multilateralism—or peaceful, astrategic, "postmodern" internationalism—and the more traditional, even regressive realm of confrontation between national and regional strategies of power fought against a background of terrorism, civil wars, and nuclear proliferation.

He offers an interpretative framework for thought and action in a multipolar world that is anything but balanced and harmonious, as many commentators expected in the wake of "American Empire."
