The Future of the Liberal World Order

International Relations Department and Transatlantic Academy public debate

This roundtable of eminent scholars will debate the future of the liberal international order. The liberal order is a global system based on shared norms, economic openness, and commitment to cooperation through multilateral institutions. Will this system of global governance persist, or is the global system likely to become more fragmented, mercantilist, and more conflictual?

Trine Flockhart is senior researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies in Copenhagen and in 2013-2014 senior fellow at the Transatlantic Academy in Washington D.C.

John Ikenberry is Albert G. Milbank Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University and co-director of Princeton’s Center for International Security Studies. In 2013-2014 he is the Eastman Visiting Professor at Balliol College, Oxford.
