A World Without Superpowers: de-centered globalism

Speaker: Professor Barry Buzan
This event was recorded on 10 May 2011 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
As the inequality of power between the West and the rest diminishes, the most likely scenario for world politics is de-centered globalism, in which there will be no superpowers. But what does a world with no superpowers mean for regional coexistence and international cooperation? Barry Buzan is Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at LSE and senior fellow at LSE IDEAS.

There is also an audio podcast of this lecture (43mb 92 mins) available.

    Is it possible to get the transcript?

    • I’ve checked with Professor Buzan and there is no transcript because the lecture has been published elsewhere: ‘A World Order Without Superpowers: Decentered Globalism’, International Relations, 25:1 (2011) 1-23.

      Hope you can locate it.
