Report ISPI: work in progress, the end of a world, part II
|WORK IN PROGRESSTHE END OF A WORLD, PART II|
|A world has ended. It was the world we once knew, the liberal world of Western hegemony that emerged in the aftermath of WW2 and that we thought had triumphed when the Cold War finished. Today, we live in a period of transition to a new world, the shape of which we cannot yet clearly discern. Ours is an age of ‘work in progress’, of the gradual construction of a yet undefined international order. |
ISPI’s 2020 Report is an attempt to decipher this incompletely formed world by exploring three questions. Who are the key actors working on the construction of the new international order? In what areas are they working, or rather competing and collaborating? And what shape does this competition and collaboration assume on the regional chessboards of Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America?
