The Hoover Institution has launched a new Project on Governance in an Emerging New World that explores the challenge to governance posed by changing demographics, the information and communications revolution, emerging technologies and new means of production of goods near where they are used. This project features a series of papers and events addressing how these changes are affecting democratic processes, the economy, and national security of the United States, and how they are affecting countries and regions, including Russia, China, Europe, Africa and Latin America. A set of essays by the participants will accompany a roundtable discussion and provide thoughtful analysis of the challenges and opportunities.
The project was kicked off on Oct. 3 with the first set of essays focused on Russia and compiled in this online format. The second event, taking place today, Oct. 29, will focus on China and can be found via this link. There is a livestream of the public panel discussion today from 3:30–5:00 p.m. Pacific.
