The State of the International Order

The Brookings Institution, February 2014

The report assesses the state of the international order five years after the financial crisis and ten years after the Iraq war. In gauging the state of the international order, the report attempts to answer two questions: (1) What are the material realities shaping the options faced by the great powers? (2) What are the issue-by-issue interactions that are revealing or shaping the content of great power relations, and international order more generally? It identifies 11 defining characteristics of the contemporary international order, including Europe’s lost decade, trouble on the horizon for the BRICs, risk of conflict between Great Powers, and changing pattern of international trade, among others. The report concludes with the observation that the role of the United States will be crucial to help put the international order on a more stable footing. Read the full report through this link.

British Council, 2013

This new British Council report ‘Culture at Work‘ provides insight into how employers view intercultural skills in the workplace, why these skills are important, and how they stack up next to other necessary skills in employers’ eyes. It’s based on a a survey of more than 360 recruitment decision makers at large organizations in nine countries: Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Jordan, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States.

"I do not want my house to be walled in on sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible."

- Mahatma Gandhi

“The vital mortar to seal the bricks of world order is education across international borders, not with the expectation that the knowledge would make us love each other, but in the hope that it would encourage empathy between nations, and foster the emergence of leaders whose sense of other nations and cultures would enable them to share specific policies based on tolerance and rational restraint.”

- Senator J. William Fulbright

“Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective.”
