In his new book, Winkler looks at the transition from an US-led to a multipolar world. With a time horizon of 2100, he identifies the megatrends that will shape the century - demography, migration, climate change, the technological revolution -, looks at the leaders and strategies of the key players, notably the US, China, and Russia, and identifies the areas of potential conflict as well as the implications of the decay of the multilateral system and of the growing fragmentation of national politics. The author makes concrete proposals how to cope with the challenges we face. A must for everyone interested in politics.
A retired ambassador, Theodor H. Winkler was among the architects of Swiss security policy and the father of the Geneva Centres for security policy, mine action, and security sector reform as well as the "Maison de la paix" in Geneva.
