Navigating a Multipolar-Values World

May 30, 2018 - 9:00 am

Atlantic Council, 1030 15th Street, NW
Washington, DC
Please join us on Wednesday, May 30 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. for a half-day conference on the diverging norms and values in a multipolar world and what this means for government, business, and society.

Hosted by the Atlantic Council's Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Sweden, this event will feature keynote remarks by H.E. Annika Söder, Sweden's State Secretary for Foreign Affairs, and two panel discussions. A light breakfast will be served.

With the "rise of the rest," the West's ability to influence global norms and standards is shrinking. If this gap in values continues to widen, it will have far-reaching consequences for geopolitical dynamics, economic competition, and civil society.

Register now to secure your spot in our discussion on the implications of these trends and how we should address them.
