Promising Partnerships: Emerging and Established Powers in the 21st Century March 10, 2014 / Daniel M. Kliman, Joshua W. Walker, William Inboden

To chart a vision for 21st century partnerships between emerging and established power, in July 2013 the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) launched the Emerging Powers Policy Forum. This initiative has brought together emerging power diplomats in Washington, DC, along with relevant U.S. and U.K. officials, to discuss how to approach the key policy questions presented by the changing international landscape. Over the course of three meetings in the fall of 2013, participants addressed the following themes: economic diplomacy, global security challenges, and scientific, cultural, and other people-to-people exchanges. Prior to each session, the contributors to this volume authored read-aheads that were distributed to participants. The sections of this volume build on the read-aheads by integrating the best ideas generated during the course of the discussion.

In the first section, “Rethinking Economic Diplomacy: Blurring the Lines between Public and Private,” Joshua Walker argues that global prosperity in the 21st century will require closer cooperation between governments and companies in both emerging and established powers. In the second section, “Global Security Challenges Confronting Established and Emerging Powers,” William Inboden cautions against sweeping generalizations about either group of states. In the third section, “Reimagining People-to-People Diplomacy,” Joshua Walker explores the rising importance of international exchange programs. Together, these sections set forth an innovative agenda for advancing cooperation between emerging and established powers. In a world of growing risk and uncertainty, these promising partnerships hold the key to adapting and renewing the global order.
