Threats and Opportunities of Isolationism (with Mikhail Troitskiy)

13 Jun 2018

(Video | Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum 2018) Global challenges such as climate change, migration, economic stability and food and water supply require international cooperation. For decades, the US has shaped the international agenda. However, with the ‘America First’ policy of Donald Trump, the US is now holding back more and more. And on the opposite side of the Atlantic, the rise of populist movements in Germany and Europe has also lead to a turning inwards. How will it impact international power relations? Does this shift pose a threat to international relations or an opportunity for more equal power distribution?

Discussants: Mikhail Troitskiy, Benedikt Franke, Sean Jacobs, and John Gizzi
