The Challenges Of 2030: International Politics – The Future of World Order With Dr Jeff Bridoux From Aberystwyth University
November 19 @ 11:15 - 12:00
As part of Aberystwyth’s exciting The Challenges of 2030 series, Dr Jeff Bridoux from the Department of International Politics at Aberystwyth University will explore the future of world order. The session will tackle key themes including power in international politics, United States, China, and global challenges (climate change, global health, nuclear proliferation, war, globalisation).
The last ten years have been marked by a gradual shift in power amongst great powers. More specifically, a relative decline in US power concurrent with the rise of China as an economic and military powerhouse have prompted analysts of international politics to declare that the world is entering a period of power transition.
The world order as we know it is changing.
This session aims to:
- assess the state of the current world order;
- identify key-challenges to global stability; and,
- venture a guess as to the shape of world order in 2030.
