Order, Law, and Governance in the 21st Century

The most urgent challenges of the future transcend the political boundaries and institutions of the 20th century; the funding of security and global pandemics are just two examples. Faced with numerous global challenges, how can governments work better with each other? How do they work with business and civil American culture on shared risks? What does sovereignty look like in the 21st century? Panel includes Sen. Bob Bennett.
