Thinking Against the Present: It is a mantra of our time that the world is changing. But what alternatives to the ordering of global politics can be imagined without succumbing to availability bias and the limits imposed by our anchoring in time and space, and how possible are they? This panel will seek to provide a structured overview of some alternatives to the present that are based on scenarios of possible future transformations of the liberal order created as part of a scenario-building project carried out at the Institute of International Relations. In cooperation with the Deutsch Security Square, Charles University and the Global Arena Research Initiative
