ECFR Black Coffee Morning with Dr Daniel Kliman (Transatlantic Fellow, German Marshall Fund) and Anthony Dworkin (Senior Policy Fellow, ECFR) Chaired by Hans Kundnani (Editorial Director, ECFR)
The international order has always been a fragile system. With the rise of Brazil, India, Indonesia and Turkey - large economies with strategic locations and democratic political systems – the international order has the potential to be transformed. In this sense, these countries can be defined as ‘global swing states’. As expanding powers, they might be thought to have an interest in an effective, rules-based international system, but they have shown themselves to be sceptical about some elements of the current order. What are the prospects that these key countries will throw their weight behind the reform and preservation of the existing global system? How can the US and Europe support and fit into this potential renewal of the international order?
