Bilkent IR Talks, Spring 2021-4

On March 22, 2021, Prof. Ilene Grabel (University of Denver) delivered a lecture for IR Talks @Bilkent titled “The American Financial Order is Crumbling (and It’s A Good Thing, Too)”. The talk drew on Prof. Grabel's book When Things Don't Fall Apart: Global Financial Governance and Developmental Finance in an Age of Productive Incoherence, which examines how the global financial crisis created the necessary space for pluripolar forms of global financial governance. In her lecture, Prof. Grabel explained how productive incoherence comes about and why it is important. She noted that the decades ahead are likely to witness complex processes such as deglobalization, reglobalization, networked bilateralism, and diverse multilateralisms.
