YPFP NY: "Every Nation for Itself" with Ian Bremmer, President of Eurasia Group
Join the Young Professionals in Foreign Policy for an evening with Ian Bremmer to discuss the launch of his new book Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World.
Acclaimed geopolitical analyst Ian Bremmer argues in a new book that the world is facing a leadership vacuum. Now that so many challenges transcend borders—from the stability of the global economy and climate change to cyber-attacks, terrorism, and the security of food and water—the need for international cooperation has never been greater. A lack of global leadership will provoke uncertainty, volatility, competition, and, in some cases, open conflict. In the generation to come, negotiations on economic and trade issues are likely to be just as fraught as recent debates over nuclear nonproliferation and climate change.
Please join YPFP NY after the event for drinks and informal discussion!
