SERIES: GOVERNANCE IN AN EMERGING NEW WORLD

George Shultz has observed that the world ahead will not be like the world behind us. His project on Governance in an Emerging New World explores the challenge posed by changing demographics, the information and communications revolution, emerging technologies, and new means of production of goods near where they are used. Its contributors aim to understand the impact of these global transformations on our democracy, our economy, and our national security, and on other countries, including Russia and China.
