In Kishore Mahbubani’s view, global power is shifting from the West to the 
Rest—from Europe and North America to Asia and Africa.  He argues that changes 
will be required both in the West and the Rest to manage the shift gracefully 
for long-term stability.  A great deal has been learned from the West by 
everyone.  Now it is the West’s turn to learn and to dispel some of its myths 
about the new world order that is emerging.

Singaporean diplomat and scholar Mahbubani served as his nation’s Ambassador to 
the United Nations and as President of the UN Security Council.  He is a 
Professor in the Practice of Public Policy at the National University of 
Singapore where he was Dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy from 
2004 to 2017.  His books include Has the West Lost It?: A Provocation (2018); 
The ASEAN Miracle (2017); The Great Convergence (2013); and The New Asian 
Hemisphere (2008).

[This SALT talk was arranged as part of a partnership between The Long Now
