In her award-winning book, NYU Professor & Author Dr Maha Hosain Aziz predicts the world will be defined by a unique global legitimacy crisis in the coming years. Norms in geopolitics, politics, economics and society will continue to be challenged, yet there will be no consensus. If it is not a US-led world anymore, who's in charge of the international system? If democracy is weakening, is there a better system to replace it? If globalization is failing some, is populism the answer? If liberal values are in decline, will xenophobia dominate? Dr Aziz argues that tech has already worsened all aspects of this unique global legitimacy crisis. But she also offers hope that in the future tech can be creatively leveraged to be part of the cure.
FUTURE WORLD ORDER (2020) aims to serve as a guide for all audiences to make better sense of the world at this sensitive global turning point. And it encourages readers to be more activist in shaping their future. 15% of Professor Aziz's book profits go to her late brother's memorial fund, the Abid Aziz Fund, which supports charity Peace & Sport's Syrian refugee youth project in Jordan's Za'atari camp.
