Future Great Power Relations

The Future of Great Power Relations
Will America’s global preeminence endure in the 21st century? Will Russia and the European Union decline while other powers grow more influential? In this course we will explore the future global balance of power and prospects for cooperation or competition among the world’s great and aspirational powers. Topics include the rise of Brazil, China, India, and Venezuela; the changing nature of American power; the causality of global power shifts, and their implications for cooperation or competition on key policy issues: strategic positioning in the South China Sea, nuclear nonproliferation, energy security, economic integration in the Western Hemisphere, and intervention in the unstable Middle East.
