Professor Michael Blake took part a panel discussion at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto on “Reflections on Global Affairs: Is the world really falling apart?” along with Radall Hansen, Director of the Center of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Professor of Political Science, Janice Stein, Founding Director of the Munk School of Global Affairs and an internationally renowned expert on international conflict and global governance, and moderator Stephen Toope, Director of the Munk School of Global Affairs. The panel was recorded in front of a live audience at the Munk School on November 29th and aired on Ideas with Paul Kennedy on CBC radio, in Canada and NPR in the US.
The news has been bleak: Brexit, populism, terrorism and, an America divided. The war in Syria continues to rage and the number of refugees and other migrants world-wide is soaring. Then, there's economic inequality and a host of other big concerns. It's tempting to think that everything is falling apart. But is that really true? IDEAS in partnership with the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto reflects upon the state of the world, along with a razor sharp panel.
