In the battle against populism and alternative truth-driven politics peer-driven change is becoming the most realistic mode of defence.

Leading foreign-policy expert Anne-Marie Slaughter expands on her concept of chess board politics and networks for a timely discussion on the state of achievable change.

What is happening in global affairs in 2017? The rise of populism in Europe and Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ policy are causing much handwringing.

The model of international cooperation and open, win-win politics that has dominated for the last 50 years seems to be in decline as nations turn in on themselves and prioritise their own interests.

Many of us want to oppose what’s happening but feel powerless to take practical action. What is the concerned citizen to do? Enter Anne-Marie Slaughter, one of America’s leading foreign-policy experts and former adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is coming to the Intelligence Squared stage to share her analysis of the current state of geopolitics and put across an empowering vision of her own.

The debate will be lead by Guardian columnist, broadcaster and author Jonathan Freedland, and participants will be invited to have their say too. ……………………………………………………………………………………….
