I’ll give a talk at the South Asia Institute of the University of Heidelberg on October 22. The working title is “India and the age of superstates.” Abstract: “The world is entering the age of superstates: an era in which the global order will be dominated by states of unprecedented scale and internal complexity. The US is the vanguard superstate; India and China are rising superstates; and the European Union is an aspiring superstate. Superstates have features in common with ordinary states, empires, and superpowers, but are distinct in important ways from all of these other political forms. This presentation will discuss the governance challenges shared by all superstates, but which are presently addressed in radically different ways. These include the creation of effective systems of leadership; maintenance of internal cohesion; economic regulation; promotion of justice; and management of external demand for resources and markets.” Details about event.
