From the protests and violence in the Middle East to the earthquake and nuclear radiation in Japan, rising powers face an enormous range of challenges to governmental and economic security. These immediate crises spark larger quandaries around governance, energy resources and economic development. They also lend a note of urgency to the Carnegie Council's fourth annual discussion of the "Rise of the Rest."

This year's panelists will confront the following questions: What explains the timing and severity of this upheaval? How can other developing nations learn from the crises of their neighbors? What will be the lasting impact of recent events on global power structures?

After the Japan Society's Devin Stewart and Middle East expert Dov Waxman give regional updates and analysis, the U.S. Naval War College's Nikolas Gvosdev will address the significance of natural resources in these crises. Carnegie Council Senior Fellow David Speedie will moderate the discussion.

This event is in cooperation with the U.S. Naval War College.

These programs are generously supported by Alfred and Jane Ross Foundation, Hewlett-Packard, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Booz & Company, Donald M. Kendall, and Rockefeller Family & Associates.
