As part of his recent visit to the United States, which included talks on the West Coast, and in Chicago, and New York City, Laurent Cohen-Tanugi, author of The Shape of the World to Come: Charting the Geopolitics of a New Century, was interviewed for Conversations with History at the University of California at Berkeley.
You can watch a video of the interview here.
In the interview Laurent Cohen-Tanugi discusses globalization and its impact on the geopolitics of the twenty-first century. Because of the interface between globalization and geopolitics, Cohen-Tanugi argues that there is a resurgence of the global struggle for power not its demise. In the conversation, Cohen-Tanugi reflects on the relative decline of the West, the failure to integrate the Islamic world, and the emergence of new centers of power such as China and India. He also analyzes the major challenges to global order and stability in the new century.
