There is a growing consensus that the post-war, liberal international order is under significant stress and may even be in jeopardy of collapse. The RAND Corporation has conducted an 18-month study to examine the character, status, value, and future of the order. In this talk, the project director Dr. Michael Mazarr will discuss the study’s findings on the most significant factors threatening the order—and what to do about them.
