Since the end of the Cold War, the U.S. has enjoyed primacy in world affairs. Yet the 21st century promises to be characterized by multiple major powers (MMP). A seminar explored and assessed how the U.S. can continue to prosper in an age of MMP; how and if shifting patterns of power -- incl. the diffusion of destructive power to non-state actors -- will affect U.S. interests; what multi-polarity means for global security; and how multilateral approaches to global problem solving provides solutions to the challenges in the new global order. This report provides both analysis of the dynamics driving the diffusion, redist. and redef. of power around the globe, and policy options for how the U.S. can continue to play a global leadership role in an age of MMP.
