Power and Responsibility: Building International Order in an Era of Transnational Threats

Security threats in the 21st century will be unconstrained by borders—from economic instability, climate change, and nuclear proliferation to conflict, poverty, terrorism and disease.

The greatest test of global leadership will be building partnerships and institutions for cooperation that can meet the challenge. In a new book, Power and Responsibility: Building International Order in an Era of Transnational Threats (Brookings Institution Press, 2008), Managing Global Insecurity Project co-directors Carlos Pascual of Brookings, Stephen John Stedman of Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation and Bruce Jones of New York University’s Center on International Cooperation describe how the United States, working with other global powers, can rebuild international order to promote security and prosperity in today’s transnational world.

On March 10, the Brookings Institution will host the launch of Power and Responsibility. The authors and distinguished members of the Managing Global Insecurity Project Advisory Group will discuss the importance of restoring American leadership and strengthening the international system in a time of crisis. After the program, the panelists will take audience questions.
