International Relations in a Post-Hegemonic Age
The academic study of International Relations has, since since its emergence after World War I, sought to combine the development of theoretical frameworks with an engagement, of greater or lesser immediacy, with the changing course of international events. Empire, World War, Cold War and post-1991 US hegemony have all been objects of its concern. Today, oscillating at times uneasily between the enticements of abstraction, and the rush of actuality, the discipline faces a major opportunity, to p
Geometry of nonlinear connections
We show that locally diffeomorphic exponential maps can be defined for any second-order differential equation, and give a (possibly nonlinear) covariant derivative for any (possibly nonlinear) connection. We introduce vertically homogeneous connections as the natural correspondents of homogeneous second-order differential equations. We provide significant support for the prospect of studying nonlinear connections via certain, closely associated secondorder differential equations. One of the mos

Navigating Global Economic and Financial Change
The global economy is experiencing a number of consequential transformations that impact long-standing economic and financial relationships. The resulting change goes well beyond the emergence of a new destination for the global economy; it is also reflected in what is an inevitably bumpy journey that is prone to a series of market accidents and policy mistakes. In his presentation, Mohamed A. El-Erian will discuss the nature of the transformations. He will detail the drivers, and illustrate how
