21st Century Power: Dislocation, Diffusion, and Decay

This report examines how power is shifting, diffusing and decaying in the modern world from ‘smart power’ to digital power.

The report was produced as part of Churchill 2015 - a 21st century statesmanship programme commemorating Churchill’s legacy.

LSE IDEAS joined other leading academic organisations in convening expert international panels to discuss a global-strategic theme and produce an analytical report. IDEAS panellists included Patrick Porter (Strategic Studies, University of Exeter), Josef Ansorge (Yale University), and Barry Buzan (Emeritus Professor of International Relations at LSE).

One of the key questions was how modern day statesman can exert influence with power less concentrated in leaders.
