Anne-Marie Slaughter - 2015 AICD Conference - Hot Spots and Blind Spots


Published on

Ukraine, Iraq, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Israel. What’s happening in the world’s hot spots and where are things headed? What are people missing?

Dr. Slaughter begins with a conventional geopolitical analysis of what’s at stake. She then explains what we are not seeing — the many factors and trends, which are critical in causing or resolving the crises, that are being ignored or distorted.

Political analysts tend to operate entirely on the chessboard while economic analysts tend toward the web. Both frameworks are necessary, she argues, when assessing global risks.
