A new New World Order? | Bronwyn Williams & Velina Tchakarova
In this episode of The Small Print, Bronwyn is joined by political scientist Velina Tchakarova to discuss global macro trends in a post-Covid world. Who are the big players shaping the new “New World Order” as USA hegemony is on the decline? What would an alternative global system facilitated by China look like? Will the new system be bipolar or multipolar? Bronwyn and Velina talk about possible alliances between global and regional powers, the importance of controlling the silk route, and the threats and opportunities facing Africa.
