This discussion will be moderated by Mr. Ian Lesser, Vice-President at GMF and will feature Ambassador Len Ishmael, Senior Fellow at the Policy Center for the New South. The event will be the opportunity to discuss the latest PCNS publication. The book examines how nations of the Global South see the present era of back-to-back crises caused by COVID-19 and the war in Europe. It also highlights how the combined weight of history, culture, and geography has shaped the Global South’s interests and is influencing its foreign policy stance during one of the most dangerous periods of Great-Power competition in recent times—one that could see the fracturing of the world into different blocs.
