CPDCS has arranged an exceptional webinar panel on the Tectonic Geopolitical changes that are transforming the international landscape, their implications, and common security policies. Understanding the forces at play is essential to ending and preventing wars, reversing the climate emergency, and bringing greater security and justice to all.

Before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Hamas’ October 7 massacre, and the launching of Israel’s genocidal war, the U.S. National Security Strategy announced that the Post Cold-War era was over, and that China is the rival peer power. Competition for 21st century power and privilege was already well under way. How greatly the world has changed is reflected in the Global South’s greater influence marked by its reluctance to take sides in the Ukraine War and in South Africa’s charging Israel with genocide – with the U.S. and much of Europe deeply complicit – in the International Court of Justice.

These tectonic changes are playing out before our eyes and will affect our, our children’s, and our grandchildren’s lives. As we see here worldwide calls for ceasefires and to stanch the climate emergency, our actions make a difference.

The webinar from 12:00 pm to 1:30 p.m. EDT, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM CEST is scheduled to accommodate our speakers from India, Turkey, and here in the U.S.

The expert panel will include

Richard Falk, Emeritus Professor of International Law at Princeton University and former United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territories, and author of 20 books.

Anuradha Chenoy, Emeritus Professor, and former Dean of the School of International Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University, member of Asian Regional Exchange for New Alternatives, consultant with Focus on the Global South and the Asia European Peoples Forum, and author of numerous books and articles.

Michael Klare, Emeritus Professor of the Five Colleges Peace and World Security Program, Defense Correspondence of The Nation Magazine, member of the board of directors of the Arms Control Association, a contributor to many publications, and author of numerous books.
