03: Europe and the emergence of new centres of power

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
in englischer Sprache

Europe needs to recognize the important shifts in global economic and political power that are presently underway. The ongoing power shifts foretell a much different world  a world characterized by greater distribution of power. Such a world will bring new opportunities but also new uncertainties. As history testifies, tectonic shifts in power are rarely quiet. In addition to the ongoing shifts, energy is getting increasingly intertwined with geopolitics, as global competition for resources sharpens. While the centre of gravity in international relations is beginning to move toward the Asia-Pacific region, Europe can still expect to play an important role in world affairs.
