The Aspen Strategy Group (ASG) is proud to publish reflections from this years’ ASG Summer Workshop titled Towards a New Rules-Based Order. Our authors’ pieces examine different dimensions of today’s shifting international environment, such as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the global security order, adaptive economic institutions, and NATO’s renewed importance on the world stage.
We are pleased to share this collection of original essays, as well as a number of related articles on the workshop theme that were published by our meeting participants in major media outlets.
