Dynamics of Global Power

Addressing critical international peace and security challenges requires understanding of the ways in which global power is being redefined and redirected. Important transitions at present include the erosion of U.S. primacy and the rise of China, the ousting of old regimes across the Middle East and North Africa and the explosion of information networks across and within international boundaries. While some states are striving to contain and manage the allocation and use of power within their borders, others are coping with infringements on their national sovereignty from global forces beyond their control. Dynamics of Global Power aims to:

  • Understand and assess the implications of geostrategic shifts among China, Russia, the United States, and other major and emergent powers.
  • Bridge academia with policy in seeking solutions to key foreign and security policy challenges.
  • Bring international perspectives to problem solving in the foreign and security policy arena.
