Abstract: "World at Risk: are Asia and Europe chasing the same dream or nightmare?"
It is an oddity that discussions of cosmopolitanism are overwhelmingly Euro-American. They are about globalizsation and about shared risks, rights and responsibilities in an interconnected world, but they reflect disproportionately views from the old world system. In my lecture I try to overcome some of these biases.
