NYUAD Institute will host a talk on the collisions of the Semi-Great Powers: Western, Chinese, and Islamic.
Irresistible demographic and social trends are undermining entrenched authorities everywhere, creating a world in which no single power or coalition can impose its will on the rest of the global community. As Western hegemony dwindles, there is a growing need for power sharing and collective management of global commons, but transnational collaboration is likely to be obstructed by precisely the societies that are most indispensable to future progress; by Western nations trying to prolong past dominance and by Chinese and Islamic leaders who are eager to assert decisive influence in their own right.

NYUAD Institute always hosts talks, conferences, research workshops, public lectures, films, and exhibitions, which explore topics central to NYU Abu Dhabi academic and research pursuits such as sustainability, urban planning, climate change, peace, genomics, and world finance. Event speaker will be Robert R. Bianchi, Advisor and Visiting Professor of the Middle East Studies Institute at Shanghai International Studies University.

 
** The event is free and open to the public.
