We are proud to announce that 2020's Annual Global Policy Institute Lecture will be given Professor Amrita Narlikar. The lecture is entitled 'Must the Weak Suffer what they Must? The Global South in a World of Weaponized Interdependence' and it will be held on online (Zoom) , 12.30-3.00pm GMT, Tuesday 27th October.
The May 2020 issue of Global Policy has a special section on 'Enhancing Europe's Global Power' edited by Helmut Anheier, Christoph Abels, Iain Begg and Kevin Featherstone. There are articles on hard and soft power, leadership, and enhancing European power.
I and many other observers see the world changing dramatically around us - from technology, from geopolitics, from economic and financial turbulence, from the rise of the rest. We figure the best global thinking needs to be joined up across fields. Yet others might still disagree on both hypotheses. Regardless, Global Policy is the right journal for our times, and what will emerge from its pages will inform debate of global significance.
