The Future of the Global Liberal Order

After a 70-year run, the global liberal order is under threat. The future of liberal democracy, open markets and common security pacts hang in the balance. There are red flags everywhere - from outbreaks of populism to the spread of protectionism and trade wars.

The question everyone is asking is - can these trends be reversed? And if they can, will the global liberal order be updated and made fit-for purpose in the 21st Century? If the global liberal order collapses, will it be replaced by something fundamentally different?

This series of articles, curated by the Lind Initiative, explores the crisis facing the global liberal order from without and within and the implications of a post-western international order.
