Is the Liberal International Order Over?

Munk Debates

By David Johanssen

Since the end of World War II, global affairs have been shaped by the increasing free movement of people, goods, and, many would say, mutual benefits of a more interdependent world. Together these factors, say defenders, sustained an era of rising global prosperity and declining international conflict. But now the pillars of the liberal internationalism are being shaken by the reassertion of national borders, national interests, and nationalist politics across the globe. Can liberal internationalism survive these populist challenges and remain the defining rules-based system of the future? Or, are we witnessing the end of the liberal international order?

Join us at Shelter Theater on Wednesday, June 21, at 5pm as we present a fascinating Munk Debate, The Future of Geopolitics, which examines all sides of the issue. Filmed live in Toronto, liberal journalist Fareed Zakaria and conservative author Niall Ferguson square off on this important and current topic using the theme “Be it resolved, the liberal international order is over.” The points they raise and positions they defend will surprise you! Our own debate and discussion begins immediately after the Munk Debate.

Saturday, June 17, at 7pm, Carlos Santana: Corazón. Join us for a video presentation of guitar legend Carlos Santana performing with some of the biggest names in Latin music, including superstars Lila Downs, Gloria Estefan, and Juanes. It’s a truly muy Mexicano concert filmed live in Guadalajara, Mexico. According to NY Daily News, “Carlos Santana’s Corazón is the guitar great’s first all-Latin album—not to be missed.” If you love Latin rhythms, you won’t want to miss hearing it all on our surround-sound stereo system!
