Chatham House: Independent thinking on international affairs


The Future of Globalization

Under 35s Forum

Thursday 15 March 2012 19:00 to 20:00 GMT


Chatham House, London


Parag Khanna, Senior Research Fellow at the New America Foundation, Senior Fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, and Visiting Fellow at LSE IDEAS
Chair: Bernice Lee, Research Director, Energy, Environment and Resource Governance, Chatham House

Type: Under 35s Forum

On the face of it, the economic crisis in Europe, the Arab uprisings, protests in the west and the ongoing ‘rise of the rest’ seem separate. Parag Khanna argues that, on the contrary, globalization is the powerful unifying link between them. For the first time in human history, in his view, globalization is genuinely global, ushering in a new era of strategic competition at the geopolitical, geo-economic and geo-technological levels. He will explore the profound effects this era of globalization will exert on international affairs during the coming decade.

There will be a reception after this meeting.
