Professor Lord Nicholas Stern of Brentford will deliver the 8th Annual Oxford Fulbright Distinguished Lecture in International Relations on ‘The best of centuries or the worst of centuries? Leadership, governance and cohesion in an interdependent world’.
The international economic order, which William Fulbright helped to build after the second World War, served fairly well for much of the second half of the last century, but it must be re-cast for our increasingly interdependent world if we are to avoid the grave risks we face, including climate change, pandemics and conflict. If we do, and this will require both leadership and collaboration, we could create a very attractive future, the best of centuries. If not, the destruction which could follow, could take us to the worst of centuries.
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.
