Geopolitics: World in turmoil

Monday, 7 March

5:00 pm - 5:40 pm (CST) / 07/mar/2022 11:00 pm - 07/mar/2022 11:40 pm
This year presents prospects of a centrifugal world dynamic that pulls countries apart politically, heightening security concerns and economic tensions. The character of the United States-China relationship may define the course of global leadership for the twenty-first century. Russia’s conflict with Ukraine could rattle Europe’s security and economic future in ways not seen since the end of the Cold War. International cooperation has faltered in the Middle East. Will the domestic politics of major powers continue to accelerate these centrifugal forces? Are hot wars inevitable? Or can international leaders and institutions create pathways to stability?
