The Future of Power
Joseph Nye, University Distinguished Service Professor, Harvard University
Chair: Sir Jeremy Greenstock, Former British Ambassador to the United Nations (1998-2003)
The speaker sees two great power shifts occurring in the 21st century: power transition from West to East, and power diffusion from states to non-state actors. He will explore what he thinks these shifts mean for the Western world and explain how it is possible to formulate smart foreign policies to deal with them.
