The Post-Western World: Is There a Future for the Liberal Order?


Date: Oct 02, 2014

A 2014 report published by the Transatlantic Academy on “Liberal Order in a Post-Western World,” examines the future of the international order constructed by the West after World War II and centering on liberal democracy, industrial capitalism, secular nationalism, and open trade. It analyzes how emerging powers (including China, India, Brazil, South Africa, and Nigeria) view this liberal order and how they want to modify it in ways which advance their interests and preferences. This event is an opportunity for faculty and students to engage with practitioners and scholars of the Transatlantic Academy, including its Executive Director, Stephen Szabo, on the future of global governance and to compare notes on conceptual and policy-oriented approaches around the world.
