In his new book, Winkler looks at the transition from an
US-led to a multipolar world. With a time horizon of 2100,
he identifies the megatrends that will shape the century –
demography, migration, climate change, the technological
revolution -, looks at the leaders and strategies of the
key players, notably the US, China, and Russia, and
identifies the areas of potential conflict as well as the
implications of the decay of the multilateral system and of
the growing fragmentation of national politics. The author
makes concrete proposals how to cope with the challenges we
face. A must for everyone interested in politics.

A retired ambassador, Theodor H. Winkler was
among the architects of Swiss security policy and the father
of the Geneva Centres for security policy, mine action, and
security sector reform as well as the „Maison de la paix“
in Geneva.
