Summary: Divided Nations: With rapid globalization, the world is more deeply interconnected than ever before. While this has its advantages, it also brings with it systemic risks that are only just being identified and understood. Rapid urbanization, together with technological leaps mean that we are now physically and virtually closer than ever in humanity's history.

We face a number of international challenges - climate change, pandemics, finance, cyber security and migration - which spill over national boundaries. It is becoming increasingly apparent that the UN, the IMF, the World Bank - bodies created in a very different world, more than 60 years ago - are inadequate for the task of managing such risk in the 21st century.

Venue: Overseas Development Institute, 203 Blackfriars Road, London, SE1 8N J
