Rising Powers: From regional leaders to global players?

co-organised with the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO)
25 April 2012, 13.00-15.00
PRIO, Hausmannsgate 7, Oslo, Norway

The end of the Cold War heralded the end of global governance based on the power balancing structures linked to bipolarity. Twenty years on, there remains a lack of consensus on the status of the distribution and the exercise of power in today’s multipolar world. What is clear, however, is the rise of new powers seeking a global political role tantamount to their increased economic clout. This seminar examines how Rising Powers engage with the global agenda.
