Emerging Powers, Global Security, and the Middle East


WHEN February 9-10, 2010
WHERE NYUAD Downtown Campus, Abu Dhabi WHO By Invitation Interested scholars please contact nyuad.programs@nyu.edu

NYU’s Center on International Cooperation, in cooperation with the Brookings Institution, will examine in this colloquium the roles and responsibilities of rising powers in shaping global and regional security in the twenty-first century—with an eye to the complex security challenges faced in the broader Middle East. International institutions designed in the twentieth century are straining to cope with new categories of threats—climate change, nuclear proliferation, threats to biological security, terrorism, conflict, and poverty and economic instability—all while struggling to adapt to the power realities of an increasingly multi-polar international order. How the rising powers will be incorporated into the global security architecture will be a defining question of our era. Convened by Bruce D. Jones Director and Senior Fellow of The New York University Center on International Cooperation, NYU and Strobe Talbott President, Brookings Institution
