Exploring a New Global Governance in the Changing Geopolitical Dynamics

Exploring a New Global Governance in the Changing Geopolitical Dynamics
The course will explore a new global governance amid changing geopolitical dynamics. ​

The Ukraine crisis presented to us the seismic change of the global order we got so accustomed to for so long
time since the end of the second world war.​

Even before the crisis in Ukraine, we have struggled with the Pandemic and geopolitical tensions between the US and China, which urged us to rethink of the government policies, global supply chains and business strategies.​
We also face the common challenges coming from the climate crisis.​

In the unprecedented global environments, we need to have acute sense and intelligence of what are happening in the globe and read sings on the horizon, in order to survive.​

The course will look into a variety of aspects of global political economy, including US-China tension, the Ukraine
crisis, the change of geopolitical landscape in Europe and energy security, changing power balance in the
Indo-Pacific, entanglement of economic security with economic interdependence, free trade and the international trading system, the climate crisis and decarbonization, and governance of digital economy.​

It will also discuss how middle powers in the Indo-Pacific such as Japan, Australia, ROK and South-East Asian nations should react to the changing geopolitical environments in the region. ​

It will also try to understand how business are transforming their global operations and promoting innovation
to respond to the heightened geopolitical tension, supply chain risks and eminent common challenges such as climate change.​

The objective of the course is to help participants understand and analyze issues relevant to the today’s world
in the geopolitical perspectives. In order to do this, I will invite top class experts on each issue
from around the world.

I presume the participants interested in this course aspire to chart their own professional careers in public
service, international organizations, academia or global business and start-ups. My hope is to navigate the participants to think through their own choice for the future and prepare them
with the basic perspectives..
