John Mearsheimer: Three Great Powers
John Mearsheimer, Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago talks about why Russia and the United States are not bound to stay on the top of the headlines forever as China rises. Mearsheimer also lays out three possible scenarios for Russia’s actions as the United States and China become the primary economic and military powers.
Mearsheimer also talks about the relevance of the structural theory of international relations, even as it is criticized for being inadequate in the modern world. Mearsheimer and Valdai Club Programme Director Timofei Bordachev also discuss the process of teaching and learning, and why an education in international relations remains important.
