The Lind Initiative in U.S. Studies presents our January-March 2018 speaker series on The Unravelling of the Liberal Order. The world is undergoing a wrenching process of geopolitical transformation. Will the liberal order hold, or is its disassembling inevitable? What kinds of global order(s) does the future hold? The Lind Initiative’s Spring 2018 series will explore these and other questions, with visits from the world’s leading intellectuals on the subject.
Please join us by registering for our events on our Current Series page.

Old Auditorium, UBC
