This year’s AICGS Annual Symposium is framed around the idea of “A World in Flux”: the relative decline of the West’s economic power; the need to adapt our work forces to be successful in a new era; and changing geopolitics as a result of ongoing tensions in eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
Containing three expert analyses, this publication is a touchstone for discussion during and after the Symposium, where panelists, including the authors, will examine some of the most pressing challenges for the twenty-first century.
