Overview

On Tuesday 27 January Chatham House hosted the European launch of Power and Responsibility: Building International Order in an Era of Transnational Threats. Power and Responsibility has been prepared by the Managing Global Insecurity Project, a collaboration between the Brookings Institution, the Center on International Cooperation at New York University and the Center on International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University.

Session 1: Global Challenges and International Responses
The Managing Global Insecurity Project and MGI's book Power and Responsibility provide a set of foundational principles and a strategy for managing transnational challenges. Stephen Stedman will introduce the core arguments of Power and Responsibility. Panellists will discuss how a revitalised international system could deliver on issues at the top of the foreign policy agendas of the US, UK and their global partners.

Session 2: The US, its Allies and International Institutional Reform

How can the new US administration work with allies to respond to the demand for more effective international institutions stimulated by the global financial crisis? On the pressing transnational issues of economic governance/global poverty, climate change, and nuclear proliferation, how can the US working with allies build legitimate and effective global institutions to respond? And what is the timeline for reform?
