Leadership in a Shrinking World

How will the world become more unified in the next ten years? The Stanley Foundation edited a book to investigate the “paths by which nine powerful nations, a regional union of 27 states, and a multinational corporation could all emerge as constructive stakeholders in a strengthened rules-based international order.”

This Monday, the New America Foundation hosted an event on the book, and specifically Japan. With Yukio Hatoyama in the lead, Japan will alter the tone – at least slightly – of its foreign policy and possibly assume a new position in the world.
