New global developments are changing the structures and holders of power. With new technology and greater interconnectedness, states are losing power and non-state actors are gaining power. But what exactly does it mean to have power? Where does power come from? Maria Armoudian explores the concept of political power with Giulio M. Gallarotti, Joseph S. Nye Jr., and Erica Chenoweth.
Joseph S. Nye Jr. is an Emeritus Professor in Political Science at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. He is an expert in international relations theory and is the author of Understanding Global Conflict and Cooperation: An Introduction to Theory and History.
