#21: Andrew Hurrell

Brave Old World

Everyone is familiar with globalization, its problems and discontents. But how to correspond to it politically? Andrew Hurrell is Professor of International Relations at the University of Oxford and has spent much time studying liberal ideas about globalization: how it has evolved in modern times as well as its current challenges like populism, pandemics, climate change, and war. As an Einstein Visiting Fellow, Andrew Hurrell seeks to understand why adopting truly internationalist policies is so difficult today.
