To mark 30 years since the end of the Cold War - What has changed, what has not!

The end of the Cold War was meant to be the ‘end of history’, with liberal democracy and ‘free markets’ triumphant globally. Instead, democracy is in retreat, right-wing populists are on the march in many societies, and China’s rise appears to offer a new economic model and challenge the US’ global leadership. Thirty years on, it is time to take stock. What has changed, what has not, and how did we get here?

The panel moderator Associate Professor Sarah Percy will lead our panellists Associate Professor Shahar Hameiri, Associate Professor Andrew Phillips, Associate Professor Nicole George and Associate Professor Marianne Hanson. You are also invited to a cocktail function following the panel event to catch up with colleagues, academic staff from the School of Political Science and International Studies and/or fellow students.

The event will start at 6pm with a cocktail function to follow. Please arrive by 5:30pm

Registration Essential.
