How to Run the World

Charting a New Renaissance Through "Mega-Diplomacy"

Please join the New America Foundation in a conversation with Senior Research Fellow Parag Khanna on his new book, How to Run the World: Charting a Course to the Next Renaissance. This follow-on to his international best-seller, The Second World, explores our chaotic 21st century landscape, which Khanna describes as a New Middle Ages. How to Run the World lays out a bold new “mega-diplomacy” that combines the resources of governments, corporations, and civic actors to address our most pressing global challenges.

Covering issues ranging from the present economic turbulence, to terrorism and failed states, to human rights, healthcare, and the environment, Khanna provides illuminating examples of how this new mega-diplomacy functions on the ground—and how it represents a model to elevate the world into a new Renaissance.
