War is possible

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Our current era is comparable to the 1920s. Then the world was tribalising as a reaction to the trauma of the First World War. Globalisation was in decline. Today the world evolves towards more authoritarianism, more isolationism and protectionism, as a reaction to the trauma of 9/11 and other terrorist attacks. If we do not succeed in turning this trend, war is coming.
