About the event

Across the globe, elements of the liberal international order — a U.S.-led concept that worldwide relations are guided by certain principles, which has helped promote peace and prosperity since the end of World War II — appear to be challenged as never before. How new and deep are these challenges? Attend this talk to gain insight into what the liberal order has been, the sources of challenges to it, and the possible consequences of these challenges.

Lisa Martin, professor, UW–Madison’s Department of Political Science; associate dean, UW Graduate School
