The degree to which the four “global swing states,” as this project calls them, will defend and reform the international order remains uncertain. If they do, their rise presents an enormous opportunity for the United States and its European allies. If they do not, they, the United States, and countries across the globe will suffer the consequences.
The Global Swing States Project, led by Dr. Daniel M. Kliman of the German Marshall Fund of the United States and Richard Fontaine of the Center for a New American Security, examines how the United States and its European allies can partner more closely with Brazil, India, Indonesia, and Turkey to strengthen the international order.
The Center for a New American Security and the German Marshall Fund of the United States invite you to attend:

On November 27, join the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) for the release of a new report that addresses a key opportunity for the second Obama administration: building closer partnerships with Brazil, India, Indonesia and Turkey to strengthen the international order. Co-authored by Dr. Daniel M. Kliman of GMF and Richard Fontaine of CNAS, the report, Global Swing States: Brazil, India, Indonesia, Turkey and the Future of International Order, offers a new framework for thinking about these four powers. It also focuses on how to expand U.S. cooperation with them on trade, finance, maritime security, nonproliferation and human rights. The event will feature a presentation of the report by the authors and include a panel discussion featuring Under Secretary of State Robert Hormats, with a reception to follow.
This is the first public event of the Global Swing States Project, a joint initiative of GMF and CNAS.
