"The New World Disorder"

Daniella Schwarzer is the executive director of the German Council on Foreign Relations and the 2018 Carol Hoffmann Collins Global Scholar-in-Residence. As part of a three-day visit to Mount Holyoke, she will give a public lecture on Oct. 17. “The New World Disorder” will focus on the growing disintegration of the post-WW II European and global structures of governance and the implications for peace and security.

Dr. Schwarzer is a foremost strategic expert on the economics, politics and foreign relations of the European Union. Not unlike the United States, Europe is facing political fragmentation and polarization — and hard choices. Her visit to campus from Oct. 15-18 will provide Mount Holyoke students a rare opportunity to understand and participate in the intense discussions of the future of the West now taking place the world over.

Her public talk will address the trends that are shifting economic, political and military power away from Europe and the United States, and examine options for growth and social cohesion in the changing world order. Her talk will take place on Wednesday, October 17, at 7:00 p.m. in Gamble Auditorium.
