“Is the ‘Liberal World Order’ Worth Defending?” A Panel Discussion

October 23, 2018 12:10 pm –2:00 pm
Speaker(s):
Robert Jervis, Panelist, Adlai E. Stevenson Professor of International Politics; Jack Snyder, Panelist, Robert and Renée Belfer Professor of International Relations; Stuart Gottlieb, Panelist, International and Public Affairs Professor; Stephen Wertheim, Panelist, Visiting Scholar, SIWPS; Richard Betts, Moderator, Director, SIWPS

There is a lot of talk bemoaning the death of the liberal rules-based world order.  But it is less clear exactly what this order entailed, in what sense it was liberal, how (and by whom) the rules were established and maintained, and who benefited from it.  The panel will discuss these issues and the questions of whether the order can and should be maintained and what might replace it.
