10 OUT | Post-Western World: How Emerging Powers are Remaking Global Order

CEI-IUL received Oliver Stuenkel as a guest speaker for the opening conference of the Master in International Studies.

Professor Stuenkel addressed what he calls the Post-Western World, shaped by Emerging Powers. In his book with the same title, Stuenkel examines how emerging powers – such as China, India, and Brazil – are challenging the United States’ superpower status, consequently changing the balance of power at the global level.
