In a world increasingly defined by political unrest and unpredictability, the coming conflict is between the citizen and the state. Political scientist Ian Bremmer, in conversation with Merit Janow, explores the downsides of globalism, the struggle between the insider and the outsider, between governments and citizens, and the fear that has generated drastic geopolitical shifts.

Ian Bremmer is president and founder of Eurasia Group and GZERO Media as well as a foreign affairs columnist and editor-at-large for Time magazine. His latest book, Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism, is a New York Times bestseller. Merit E. Janow (moderator) is dean of the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) and a professor of practice in international economic law and international affairs at SIPA and Columbia Law School.
