The Age of Perplexity: Rethinking the World We Knew at Washington

The Atlantic Council, BBVA and the Elcano Royal Institute co-hosted the event "The Age of Perplexity: Rethinking the World We Knew," an amazing debate about the topics of the latest OpenMind book.

Technological revolution and globalization have opened up the "Age of Perplexity." This new age is defined by rapid and vast changes in the economy, politics, society, and daily life. Mass migration, climate concerns, populism and anti-establishment movements, authoritarianism, digital disruption, economic inequality, and demographic change all present serious challenges to the liberal world order.

Charles Powell (Elcano Royal Institute), Zia Qureshi (Brookings Institution), Diana Owen (Universidad de Georgetown), Jan-Werner Müller (Universidad de Princeton), John Andrews (Project Syndicate), Ian Storey (ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute), Miguel Ángel Centeno (Research Community on Global Systemic Risk), Frances G. Burwell (AtlanticCouncil) participated on the event and shared their perspectives on the major transformations currently taking place in our society and the impact they may have on the future of the liberal international order. These are the challenges and opportunities that will define the 21st century.
