Managing Global Insecurity: International Cooperation and Transnational Threats

Wednesday, June 10, 2009 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Among the many foreign policy issues confronted by the Obama administration are these: major transnational threats that pose new challenges to U.S. foreign policy; and a shifting balance of power that create many new seats at the table. Just as cooperation with the rising powers has been a key plank in handling the financial crisis, forging effective cooperative relationships between the major and rising powers to prevent transnational threats--among them biological insecurity, nuclear proliferation, climate change, terrorism and failed states--will be central to protecting U.S. national and global security in the coming era. 

On Wednesday, June 10, 2009, CGD hosted a discussion on Managing Global Insecurity: International Cooperation and Transnational Threats with Bruce Jones, Director of New York University Center on International Cooperation. Vijaya Ramachandran, Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development, moderated the discussion.
