Speaker information

Professor Robert O. Keohane, Princeton University

Professor Robert O. Keohane will talk on the topic of contested multilateralism.

Contested multilateralism describes the situation that results from the pursuit of strategies by states, multilateral organizations, and non-state actors to use multilateral institutions, existing or newly created, to challenge the rules, practices, or missions of existing multilateral institutions. It occurs when coalitions dissatisfied with existing institutions combine threats of exit, voice, and the creation of alternative institutions to pursue policies and practices different from those of existing institutions.
