Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts The Meta-West as a Geoeconomic System

The Meta-West as a Geoeconomic System

| Center for the Study of America and the West

About the Event

At a time when the West is facing heightened security challenges from great power rivals, terrorists, and other non-state actors, how has the existing system of Western alliances evolved? 

FPRI has put together a new four-part seminar series on the concept of a Meta-West, which will examine this larger system and its capabilities. The first event in this series will address the Meta-West's powers and functions as a systemic whole. The subsequent events will analyze the Meta-West's roles as geo-political and geo-economic systems. The fourth and final event will explore the findings and implications of the seminar series, where further research should be conducted, and what policymakers can do now to further the goals of the larger system.

This seminar series is a part of the Robert Strausz-Hupé Project: The Atlantic System in a World of Great Power Rivalry.

Please note: Registration to this event will register you for all 4 events in the series. To view part one of the series, "What is the Meta-West" please click here. To view part two, "The Meta-West as a Geopolitical System" please click here.
