Many observers are excited that Joe Biden’s presidency promises to bring international cooperation back into American foreign policy, but whose interests are advanced and whose are harmed by international agreements? While international cooperation is often presented as a smart, pragmatic and progressive approach, a closer look reveals some reasons to worry.

Northwestern University Weinberg College Center for International and Area Studies Director and Political Science Professor, Ian Hurd, and European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights Program Manager, Jonas Grimheden, will highlight the potential of international agreements and pitfalls of international cooperation that looks more like coercion or heavy-handedness during this Northwestern Roberta Buffett Institute for Global Affairs webinar.

This is part of the Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs’ Building Sustainable Futures: Global Challenges and Possibilities webinar series.
