EWI Senior Vice President Bruce McConnell traveled to Beijing, China for the Fourth Global Think Tank Summit hosted by the China Center for International Economic Exchanges (CCIEE).
At the summit, McConnell delivered a speech on the challenges facing international security and the importance of context in global governance. He noted that technology has fostered an "explosion of transparency" in recent years through "its stimulation of expectations of participation, its power to flatten organizational management structures, and its ability to support collaboration across boundaries of all kinds." He also emphasized the important role of experimentation in developing "alternative institutions that can take the place of those that are proving incapable."
