The origins, current position and future prospects of the US-led Liberal International Order

4.00pm

Lectures

Public

We are delighted to welcome one of the world's leading political theorists, Princeton University's John Ikenberry to deliver a lecture on The origins, current position and future prospects of the US-led Liberal International Order.

Since the election of Donald Trump to the US presidency, the Brexit vote of 2016, and the rise of populism on Left and Right, the American-led liberal international order – Bretton Woods, NATO, international free trade, EU, and the security treaties with Japan and South Korea – appear to have gone into deep crisis. Add to that existing challenges of rising powers like China, the global financial crash of 2008, and the Iraq war disaster, and we seem to have reached a major turning point in world history.

Is the liberal order finished or can it be saved? Professor John Ikenberry is the leading thinker about liberal internationalism who will share his thoughts, diagnoses and prognoses about the future

John Ikenberry is a professor at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School, a former member of President Clinton’s State Department’s policy planning staff, a major critic of President George W Bush’s imperial foreign policy, and of the threat to the international system of the Trump presidency.

This event also launches the  special issue of International Affairs, Chatham House’s journal, on “Ordering the world? Liberal Internationalism in Theory and Practice in the age of Trump

The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with John Ikenberry, Beate Jahn (Sussex University), Nana De Graaff (Free University, Amsterdam), Doug Stokes (Exeter University) and Inderjeet Parmar (City, University of London).
