Event description

Description

The Eighth Fulbright Legacy Lecture Series will be given by Lord Stern of Brentford. His lecture is entitled:

The best of centuries or the worst of centuries? Leadership, governance and cohesion in an interdependent world.

The world has changed dramatically in the last three decades. We have seen the rise of China and emerging market economies redraw the international division of labour and the balance of economic power, and the global commons have come under intense pressure. The international economic order, which William Fulbright helped to build after the second world war, served fairly well for much of the second half of the last century. It must be re-cast for our increasingly interdependent world if we are to avoid the grave risks we face, including climate change, pandemics and conflict. If we do, and this will require both leadership and collaboration, we could create a very attractive future, the best of centuries. If not, the destruction which could follow, could take us to the worst of centuries.

In collaboration with the US-UK Fulbright Commission, the Fulbright Association presents the annual Fulbright Legacy Lecture Series featuring prominent speakers in international relations.
