Speakers: Prof Jacques Rupnik, Prof Mary Kaldor, Prof Michael Cox; Discussant and Chair: Dr George Lawson

New wars in failing states, the spread of nuclear weapons, rising terrorism, and in 2008 the great financial crash, all pointed  to an international system where the certainties of a 20th Century Cold War had given way to a new century full of uncertainty and danger.
