Mitau Lecture: Does the Liberal International Order Have a Future?

Please join the Macalester Political Science Department for the 42nd Annual G. Mitau Endowed Lecture, which will be hosted on Zoom.

G. John Ikenberry will speak on “Does the Liberal International Order Have a Future?” 

The world order is in crisis. Is the long-era of global dominance by the United States and its liberal democratic partners over — and what comes next? In his lecture, Professor Ikenberry surveys the mounting challenges to the liberal international order — the rise of China and Russia as illiberal challengers, cascading problems of interdependence, and the failings of liberal democracy. Looking back at its failures, accomplishments, and reinventions, Ikenberry argues that liberal internationalism — with its vision of an open, multilateral, and problem-solving governance logic — still has a future.  Register here.
