Powers and Principles: International Leadership in a Shrinking World
The aim of the Stanley Foundation’s project on Powers and Principles: International Leadership in a Shrinking World is to identify plausible actions and trends for the next ten years by which the international community could become more unified. The foundation asked contributing authors to describe the paths by which nine powerful nations, a regional union of 27 states, and a multinational corporation could all emerge as constructive stakeholders in a strengthened rules-based international order. For each case, the writers discuss how their given country might deal with the internal and external challenges posed by international norms for the global economy, domestic governance and society, and global and regional security.
Project participants are listed below, with their subject focus, in the order in which their essays will be published. To provide a perspective from inside, and a counterweight, a commentator from the country (or other actor) has been enlisted to give a reaction to the coauthors’ essay. Author affiliations are for identification only, and views expressed in the essays and comments are personal and not on behalf of the institutions for which they work.

The Stanley Foundation produced a 13-minute video looking at what needs to be done to stop terrorist groups from acquiring enough fissile material to make a bomb. The foundation talked with over a dozen diverse and distinguished experts from the Nuclear Security Governance Experts Group and the Fissile Materials Working Group to see how today's patchwork of voluntary arrangements can be forged into a long-lasting system.
