In this presentation, I suggest global meta trends–including global economic instability, energy system transition, ecological degradation, technological change, and hegemonic transition–and risk analysis as analytical lenses for examining contemporary events in international relations. The recent terrorist attacks in Paris provided a framing for our discussion.
Thank you to the participants in this workshop for your warm welcome and lively discussion, as well as James Fiford and Augusta Zeeng from Social Education Victoria for their invitation to participate in the Global Politics Planning Day.
