At a time of a rising China and growing challenges for the international liberal order, there has been much debate about the roles of the United States and the wider West in shaping a new global order.  In this seminar, Prof. Barry Buzan will lead a discussion about the role of the U.S. and the West in International Relations in the context of emerging challenges. His comments will focus especially on the fading prospects for continued Anglo-American leadership in international society, based on his forthcoming chapter with Michael Cox (2021) ‘The End of Anglo-America?’ in a book edited by Cornelia Navari and Tonny Brems Knudsen, Power Shifts in English School Perspective. Professor Edward Haliżak and Professor Dorota Heidrich will act as lead commentators, after which the chair will invite questions and comments from all participants. During the seminar, we will address four main questions: what does an Anglo-American world mean and is it still an adequate description of the global order? Are the values promoted by Anglo-America  still attractive for the world? What values could today’s Anglo-American world still offer? What obstacles and challenges confront Anglo-America values?

Professor Barry Buzan and Michael Cox’s paper will be available to all seminar participants, who are requested to read it before the session but not to share it more widely, as it remains under review.

Professor Daniel Przastek, Dean of the Faculty of Political Science and International Studies, University of Warsaw, will open proceedings and welcome participants, His colleague, Professor Jakub Zajączkowski, Head of the Department of Area and Global Studies, Faculty of Political Science and International Studies, University of Warsaw, will chair the session.
