It is often argued that the international system – as constructed during the aftermath of the Second World War – will be almost unrecognisable by 2025, owing to the rise of emerging powers, an ongoing globalising economy, a historic 'transfer" of relative wealth and economic power from West to East, and the growing influence of non-state actors. In view of this, our Department of Political Science presented a seminar on Emerging Powers and Global Governance. The guest speaker was Prof Amitav Acharya, Professor of International Relations at the American University in Washington, DC, and Chair of that university's ASEAN Studies Center. Prof Acharya's insightful and authoritative scholarly views were well-received and contributed much to a better understanding of the forging of new power relations in the changing global order.
