!!Description

An interview by C.J.Polychroniou; Global Policy, 10 April 2018|, available at https://www.globalpolicyjournal.com/blog/10/04/2018/world-state-disintegration-interview-heikki-patomaki (also via Brave New Europe and other sites).

!!Subject

A host of new political developments both inside liberal democracies and across the globe, such as the rise of authoritarianism, extreme nationalism and a general backlash against globalization, seem to be suggesting that the world may be in the midst of a new political era and an emerging redistribution of global political power with unforeseen and possibly unintended consequences, perhaps similar to those that led to the disintegration of the world political economy in the early part of the twentieth century. At least this is the partial interpretation offered in the interview below by renowned social scientist, civic and political activist Heikki Patomaki, Professor of World Politics at the University of Helsinki, Finland, and former Research Professor of Globalization and Global Institutions at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. Patomäki  is the author of numerous books in global politics, including, among others, 'Politics of Civil Society: A Global Perspective on Democratization', The Great Eurozone Disaster; A Possible World: Democratic Transformation of Global Institutions', and, most recently, 'Disintegrating Tendencies in  Global Political Economy'.
