The International System with Trump: Where To ?

The Ibrahim Abu-Lughod Institute of International Studies, in cooperation with the Master's Program in International Studies, cordially invites you to attend its international conference: "The International System with Trump: Where To?" , held at Birzeit University on April 16 and 17, 2019. 

The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 marked a momentous shift in the international system, transforming it from a bipolar to a unipolar regime under the leadership of the US. However, the dominance of the US on the international system started to decline with the rise of other superpowers like China and Russia, in addition to the increasing role of international organizations.

The upcoming conference aims to provide the opportunity for a high level of interaction among participants interested in discussing the changes that have taken place in the international system since the inauguration of Donald Trump as the President of the United States in 2017. The conference asks questions on how have other states reacted to and interacted with these changes, and where the international system is heading to in the future.
