Asymmetrically grown networks of informational and financial exchange allow states to use certain structural conditions for coercive ends. They increasingly “weaponize interdependence” with global effect. The lecture will present this new understanding of globalisation and power, which has clear policy implications.

Abraham Newman is Professor in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service and Government Department at Georgetown University. He is the Director of the Mortara Center for International Studies. His research focuses on the ways in which economic interdependence and globalization have transformed international politics.
