Grand Strategy Competition Rolls at Wikistrat

From Thomas P.M. Barnett:

Wikistrat’s Grand Strategy Competition – Week One

Greetings from the Wikistrat team!

In the last 7 days we’ve had 44,097 actions within the wiki with new information being added at an average rate of once every 10 minutes.

The Week 1 Challenge

Competitors, organized into 38 teams by school or institution, have been assigned either one of 13 possible actors. They were tasked with writing position papers on the following five issues:

  • Global Energy Security;
  • Global Economic “Rebalancing” Process;
  • Salafi Jihadist Terrorism;
  • “Chimerica” – China-US Relationship; and
  • Southwest Asia Nuclear Proliferation.

The standard of work has been outstanding and Dr. Barnett and the judging panel are hard at work preparing feedback and scores. We’ll announce some of those next time

    The problem with this is that political organizations do not have various Grand Strategies.

    Rather, Grand Strategies give rise to various political organizations.

    It’s an iterative relationship. Not linear. IMHO.
