The Cambridge Review of International Affairs is pleased to invite you to the first talk of our new speaker series, featuring Daniel Drezner, professor of international politics at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and a non-resident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.

Professor Drezner is the author of four books, including The Sanctions Paradox, All Politics Is Global and Theories of International Politics and Zombies. He blogs about foreign policy and economics for The Washington Post, and tweets at @dandrezner.

His most recent book, The System Worked: How the World Stopped Another Depression, examines the major efforts by the IMF , G-20, WTO and other international economic governance institutions in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Drezner contends that contrary to common assumptions about the failure of multilateral associations, the international response was sufficiently coordinated to prevent the crisis from becoming a full-fledged depression. Moreover, he argues, the institutions have emerged from the crisis stronger and more resilient than they were before.

The talk will be followed by a discussion chaired by CRIA Editor-in-Chief Maha Rafi Atal, and light refreshments will be served.

This talk is part of the POLIS events and lectures series.
