Brexit, terrorist attacks in Orlando and Nice, a failed coup in democratic Turkey, record-high temperatures globally, a US presidential candidate who wants to seal off America behind a 2,000-mile-long wall… Eight months into 2016, the world seems to be disintegrating fast. In every region, stability and unity are being replaced by insecurity and insularity. Centrifugal forces are tearing apart the human fabric.
It might seem that these are discrete problems, singular to each affected region in an Age of Divergence.
