Regional Security Architecture of the Future: Weaponized Interdependence and Deglobalization

Roundtable to be held virtually via ZOOM
Professor Henry Farrell
Associate Professor of Political Science and International Affairs
George Washington University
Professor Abraham L. Newman
Professor, Director of the Mortara Center for International Studies
The process of globalization over the last three decades has created a web of interconnected economic and security actors. But the concentration of resources best suited to economic efficiencies also creates new opportunities and challenges for states, to navigate and respond to the use of coercive leverage in which economic interests have been subject to political and security pressures. What are the features of “weaponized interdependence”? How are states reacting to the use of coercive leverage and what do these trends portend for cooperation, competition and conflict in the Asia Pacific? Profs. Henry Farrell and Abraham Newman will join us to discuss the future of interconnectedness and the mounting pressure toward deglobalization as a risk mitigation strategy.
Profs. Farrell and Newman have recently received the 2020 International Studies Association ICOMM Best Book Award as co-authors of Of Privacy and Power: The Transatlantic Struggle over Freedom and Security (Princeton University Press, 2019). This discussion will also reference Profs. Farrell and Newman’s recent work on weaponized interdependence, including articles in International Security and The Washington Quarterly.
