The mission of the Rising Powers Initiative (RPI) at the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future is to understand why rising powers flourish or fail in terms of security, governance, and health, and to understand the impact they have on the international orders of their time.
RPI conducts interdisciplinary and policy-relevant research on five emerging powers with increasing global impact: China, India, Brazil, the European Union/Germany, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
How these countries manage the fates of their citizens, and whether they make or overturn global norms and institutions, holds the key to understanding power transitions past and present, and the future stability of international society.
