Diverse Power Struggles: Transitions to a multipolar political landscape

Processing intro video. Please check back later.


Do we still have global superpowers? Or have we already entered an era of multipolarity? While observers may not agree on an answer, it is obvious that we are witnessing significant changes in the global arena of political and economic power play. Following the obvious decline of the so-called Pax Americana, are we now looking at an increasingly rudderless international system? Will we still see one – or a few – global hegemons in the future? What will be the long-term impact of the Trump presidency on the US role in world politics? What role is China going to play? How relevant and strong can a united (or divided) European Union be? What are the implications of the global geopolitical transformation for multilateral cooperation? As uncertainty grows, will we see new multilateral forms emerge? How will we deal with competing interests in a multipolar world without an escalation of conflicts?
