Does not include service & handling fees, if applicable.
World Politics is undergoing dramatic change.
Strategically, two major Cold Wars are evolving rapidly: America vs China and America/Israel vs Iran. Will they explode into dangerous conflicts? In economics, the pandemic has accelerated the passage from industrial economics to digital economies — transforming international power. Competition dominates these developments. A cluster of other issues — climate change, pandemics, refugees, application of technology etc. — require closer cooperation among nations. Can we balance competition with cooperation? In addition, two huge scientific happenings will surely impact on world affairs — for the first time ever major policy and public decisions will be made by machines not humans and now CRISPR genome editing enables designing of human beings and human talents. How will this affect the global balance of power and the fate of nations?
At this critical time, we need informed insights and objective insights.
Professor Ralph Buultjens will discuss these and other issues in this new online course. Participants will come away with a better understanding of the shifts emerging on the global scene.
