Special Podcast Series: Reflections on Kaplan’s The Coming Anarchy
ACUNS podcasts feature interviews with the leading scholars and experts from a variety of disciplines and professional backgrounds. These conversations examine the ideas and debates generated by Robert Kaplan’s “The Coming Anarchy” (The Atlantic, February 1994), and discuss how his images and analysis subsequently shaped, affected and perhaps precluded policy choices and behaviors in Western capitals, in international organizations, NGOs and elsewhere – and for several of these experts, directly in their own work. The interviewees all participated in a recent workshop, “20 Years after The Coming Anarchy: Assessing the Legacy of Robert Kaplan’s 1994 Analysis” held at the Balsillie School of International Affairs.
