The first New Era International (NEI) workshop will be held in early 2013. New Era International will consists of a series of global workshops designed to assess how scholars and policymakers in key strategic regions of the world view the political and economic choices that will drive U.S. foreign policy over the next 5-10 years. We will partner with host institutions to invite leading thinkers from academia, business, and government for several days of conversation focused at each site on a single area of uncertainty in the evolving international environment. The NEI workshops will employ scenarios and other methods to help participants develop a 360-degree view of the key challenges facing the U.S. and the world. Our first workshop, to be held in Southeast Asia in 2013, will address the changing dynamics of global public goods provision, particularly as these relate to U.S. and Chinese interests in the Pacific region.
