Meeting in English. Summary of the lecture prepared by our guest:

Intensified geo-political competition between great powers (especially involving the United States, China and Russia) has led many to suggest a new Cold War is unfolding, with unavoidable repercussions for other states and the world order. In this lecture, Emeritus Professor Roberto Rabel will address three key questions relating to this increasingly central development in the international relations of the early 21st century:

  • Why has a kind of new Cold War arisen?
  • How does this Cold War 2.0 resemble and (more importantly) differ from the old one?
  • Having ultimately prevailed in the 20th century Cold War, what lessons can democracies draw from that experience?

This event is part of the University ZIP program.
