Atlantic Council: ‘Power and Influence in a Globalized World’


READ THE REPORT — In “Power and Influence in a Globalized World,” a February 2018 joint report from the Atlantic Council’s Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security, the University of Denver’s Frederick S. Pardee Center for International Futures and the Hague Center for Strategic Studies, authors Jonathon Moyer, PhD, Pardee Center director, Tim Sweijs, HCSS research director, Mathew Burrows, PhD, director of Scowcroft’s Foresight, Strategy, and Risks Initiative, and Hugo Van Manen, a junior consultant at Ecorys, present “the Foreign Bilateral Influence Capacity (FBIC) Index,” which looks to take an intersectional approach to evaluating the power and influence of global states. “The FBIC is tasked with identifying the key influencers in the international community, and analyzing those that register above or below their weight in the world, altogether clarifying where the United States and others stand in the international system,” the Atlantic Council writes. “The FBIC Index is based on the interaction between states, as well as the relative dependence of one state on another.” Learn more about the report here.
