Particularly since 9/11, it has been commonplace to assert that the main threats to the United States and the world community emanate less from great powers than from weak and failing states. Yet surprisingly little empirical research has investigated the precise connections between weak governance in the developing world and today’s main transnational threats.  Please join author Stewart Patrick, senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, who will summarize the arguments of his forthcoming book, Weak Links: Fragile States, Global Threats, and International Security (Oxford University Press).
