The Coming Illiberal Order

About the Event

Important Program Note: Note the venue for Geopolitics with Granieri has been moved to BNY Mellon, and we are experimenting with a new format featuring a reception prior to the program rather than a lunch following the program.  If as a member at the $500 level, you miss the lunches:  not to worry;  we will be launching a bookclub (with lunch) at FPRI in the near future. 

The Coming Illiberal Order

Amid growing evidence that the world is experiencing a resurgence of authoritarianism, FPRI Senior Fellow Michael Boyle argues that the challenge is actually two-fold:  there is the challenge to democracy in individual countries but there is also a larger challenge to the international order largely built by the United States after the end of the Second World War. In a sobering essay in the current issue of Survival, published by London’s International Institute for Strategic Studies, Boyle asks how should the United States respond to the emergence of an illiberal order?  And how can it be “a more effective geopolitical competitor in the less hospitable, more violent world to come”?

Michael BoyleMichael Boyle is a Senior Fellow of the Foreign Policy Research Institute and an Associate Professor of Political Science at La Salle University.  He was a lecturer in international relations at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where he was also a Research Fellow at the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence.  His most recent book is Violence After War: Explaining Instability in Post-Conflict States (Johns Hopkins Press, 2014).
