Global Challenges

Joshua Goldstein asked eight International Relations scholars to envision global challenges in 2030:

Here are the issues they think are top of the agenda:

-Maintaining US hegemony
-Promoting international human rights law
-Middle East peace
-Regulating transnational corporations
-Piracy on the high seas
-Whether international organizations limit democracy
-Preventing another 2008-style economic crisis
-Spreading democracy around the world

An interesting list, which raises the question of whether these are the most urgent issues, and if not, what are the most pressing predicaments of the next decades?
