Policy-Making in a Fragmented World

François Crépeau at the London Conference 2015
1 June, 2015

François Crépeau was a panelist at the London Conference 2015 of the Chatham House. Alongside Professor Simon Anholt, Margaret MacMillan and Dr Shashi Tharoor, he discussed the impact of globalization on sovereign states. Are sovereign states still fit for purpose as the basic building blocks of international order? Can regional organizations or other supranational bodies provide a real alternative to, or attain the same legitimacy as, the familiar state model?

You can watch the full session and François Crépeau’s presentation (starting at 20:25) below:
