Unrealpolitik: A new world order?

Have today’s statesmen and women lost the knack of serious, calculated diplomacy?  Or is old‐style statecraft simply less relevant in a world increasingly dominated by international institutions? In this fascinating debate filmed at the Battle of ideas, panellists explain what’s changed as they see it and the debate gets heated on the best way forward. Speakers include Dr Kerry Brown, author and head of Asia programme at Chatham House; Dame Ann Leslie, journalist at the Daily Mail; Karl‐Erik Norrman, author, founder and secretary‐general, European Cultural Parliament; Brendan O’Neill, editor, spiked; Mark Seddon, writer, broadcaster and author.
