In his address to the IIEA, Professor Colgan will argue that the liberal order, though successful in many ways, has become self-defeating – in part by contributing to a deepening economic inequality and the politics of outrage that follow from it. He will argue that none of the visions put forward to address this issue can provide long-term political sustainability, and will instead propose differentiated, multi-speed cooperation between states as a path to adapting to a diverse, multipolar world order.
