About the Event

The landscape of global power is evolving, and Western countries must navigate these changes to maintain influence and address common global challenges. This presentation will survey the tectonic shifts confronting the Western-dominated world order emergent after World War II reaching virtually unchallenged dominance in the 1980s. Today, the global economic balance is shifting. The challenge to traditional Western economic dominance is reflected in the rise of new economic powerhouses altering the dynamics of international trade and finance. The world is moving towards a more multipolar political and economic system with the rise of regional powers resisting Western hegemony. Countries like Russia, India, and Brazil along with important regional powers are playing increasingly significant roles in global affairs, creating a more diverse and decentralized international order. The effectiveness of existing global institutions is aggressively being questioned with emerging powers advocating reforms which in their view would more fairly reflect the distribution of power. This movement challenges Western-dominated institutions and their ability to set the global agenda. Professor Tasar will elaborate on the ramifications of this important phenomenon.
