Tectonic shifts are taking place in the international order; we see a hesitant U.S., a rising China, but also India, disruptive Russia, Iran, and others, as well as retrenchment from multilateralism and the rules based system that was shaped after World War II and solidified in the early 1990s. On the other hand, the increased need for global cooperation caused by environmental challenges and the risks for the global economy is apparent. Is the current rules based international order over? What will replace it? What approaches should we expect from the main global players? What should we brace for?
