Topics include how technological innovation is re-shaping our societies and influencing great power competition, the meaning and relevance of liberal economic practices in this new era, the viability of capitalism, how domestic politics affect foreign policy choices, how these developments affect democracy and what the future of the transatlantic relationship will be considering these trends.
