The relationship between the United States and the countries of Europe has been a cornerstone of the liberal world order established during the Bretton Woods conference and the wake of World War II. However, it is increasingly apparent that the relationship is under strain and that other countries and regions have potentially conflicting visions regarding how the regulation of international society should be achieved, specifically concerning the legacy of the Bretton Woods Institutions and the future of the United Nations and multilateralism.
The NYU Program in International Relations is therefore pleased to partner with LeMonde Diplomatique to offer a series of three discussions on the future of transatlantic relations and the maintenance of the liberal world order in the coming decade. Each event will focus on a specific pillar of the relationship and will include speakers from the United States, Europe, and Canada. These events are open to the public and the media are welcome to attend. RSVP via the NYU IR website is required for admission. Seating capacity is limited, so reserve your place early to ensure admission.
The conference The UN and the Future of Multilateralism in the New World Disorder was organized at the occasion of the upcoming publication by The International Politics review of a new essay by Anne-Cécile Robert and Romuald Sciora.
