Emerging Powers Policy Forum
Growing challenges to international peace and prosperity place a new premium on cooperation between emerging and established powers. Efforts to forge closer partnerships have accelerated in recent years, but the gap between the level of existing cooperation and the potential of these ties to contribute to international order remains significant.
To chart a vision for 21st century partnerships between emerging and established power, The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) launched the Emerging Powers Policy Forum in July 2013. 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 from 15 governments addressed rethinking economic diplomacy, tackling global security challenges, and reimagining people-to-people exchanges. These discussions have culminated in a volume, Promising Partnerships: Emerging and Established Powers in the 21st Century, which features contributions by Dr. Daniel M. Kliman, Dr. Joshua W. Walker, and Dr. William Inboden of GMF.
The Emerging Powers Policy Forum was supported by the U.K. Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s Emerging Powers Programme Fund.
