Global Swing States: Engaging the New Pivotal Powers

Nov 27, 2012
4:00pm to 5:30pm ET

The German Marshall Fund
Washington, DC

On November 27, the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) hosted an event to release a new report that addresses a key opportunity for the second Obama administration: building closer partnerships with Brazil, India, Indonesia and Turkey to strengthen the international order. Co-authored by Dr. Daniel M. Kliman of GMF and Richard Fontaine of CNAS, the report, Global Swing States: Brazil, India, Indonesia, Turkey and the Future of International Order, offers a new framework for thinking about these four powers. It also focuses on how to expand U.S. cooperation with them on trade, finance, maritime security, nonproliferation and human rights. The event featured a presentation of the report by the authors and included a panel discussion featuring Under Secretary of State Robert Hormats.

This was the first public event of the Global Swing States Project, a joint initiative of GMF and CNAS.
