Anne-Marie Slaughter is the former Director of Policy Planning for the U.S. State Department under Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration and a professor of national security policy at Princeton University. In this fascinating talk, Anne-Marie Slaughter shares her expert insight into the rebalancing of the world in terms of state and non-state actors in global politics.
Slaughter differentiates from the traditional sense of the world, which she argues has been rebalanced vertically from a view of a billiard ball world to a networked world and eventually a LEGO world. Slaughter demonstrates the new found power of social, non-state actors and their influence on this power shift.
These orchestrated coalitions, or public-private partnerships, mean that it's not just governments anymore -- or billiard balls knocking against one another -- which she calls "citizen social actor foreign policy."
Anne-Marie Slaughter also mentions her belief that small is beautiful, stating that the energy of collaboration comes from small communities, where you get the participation and buy-in that you wouldn't in one large community.
