It's not everyday that a global investment conference is held and the views of Francis Fukuyama, Samuel Huntington and Graham Allison are mentioned in the first five minutes. But that was the case earlier this week at an event titled “Geopolitics is back with a vengeance” that was put on by Cougar Global ...
In a post-Cold War age history didn't end, as Francis Fukuyama suggested, but instead took unexpected twists. Identity politics has become ascendant, reactions to the global financial crisis seem to have unlearned many of the economic lessons of the postwar era and major political parties are flummoxed.

Faith in our system of governance and our institutions - what Francis Fukuyama called "social trust" - is fragile; once eroded, it is more difficult to restore than national solvency. And we are at a dangerous tipping point. Presidential temperament may not always conform to conservative ideals of prudence and ...
LOS ANGELES — Not long after the Cold War concluded, Francis Fukuyama declared the “end of history,” and that Western liberal democracy would inevitably consume all of humanity. The quarter century since has demonstrated this idea laughably wrong, with neoliberalism currently flailing about worse ...
In our new series of articles (co-sponsored by the Lind Initiative), we explore the crisis facing the global liberal order from without and within. We invited some of the world's foremost social scientists - Francis Fukuyama, Steven Pinker, Anne-Marie Slaughter, Misha Glenny, Edward Luce, Yves Tiberghien, ...
The prevailing assumption was that post-Soviet elites would, almost by default, adopt something akin to Francis Fukuyama's “end of history” as the underlying guiding principle of their policy formation. Political and economic liberalization was expected to obviate the sources of national competition in all ...

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” — The First Amendment of the ...
The discussion will also include Stanford University professors Francis Fukuyama and Larry Diamond. Fukuyama is the Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI), Stanford's premier research institute for international studies, and Mosbacher Director of FSI's ...
I was always skeptical of my friend Francis Fukuyama's notion that “the end of history” had dawned with the triumph of democracy and the market over communism; as I wrote at the time, in 1990, there's far more to “history” than politics and economics, and the human propensity for making a mess of things ...
Looking today at the world's largest country — and soon to be largest economy — we could reasonably invert Francis Fukuyama's famous “end of history” thesis: the market is actively undermining possibilities for democracy. Since the Tiananmen massacre of 1989, capitalism has clearly buttressed the ...
Professor at Stanford University Francis Fukuyama Such said this at the Atlantic Council in Washington on Thursday, March 29, an Ukrinform correspondent reported. "Ukraine is really at the forefront of a broad struggle for liberal democracy with various populists and authoritarian forces in the world right ...
The idea that democracy was sure to triumph has come to be associated with the work of Francis Fukuyama. In a sensational essay published in the late 1980s, Fukuyama argued that the conclusion of the Cold War would lead to “the end point of mankind's ideological evolution and the universalization of ...
In the early 1990s, shortly after the Berlin Wall came down and the West claimed victory in the Cold War, Francis Fukuyama, a Stanford University political scientist, famously suggested that the global arrangement of power had reached its conclusion. “What we may be witnessing is not just the end of the ...
The bottom line on Trump's Kim Jong-un meeting, How the West should deal with the Russian nerve gas attack, Francis Fukuyama was wrong on liberal democracy, Australian gun control did stop mass killings, Gender equality is not a zero-sum game ...
The Author interviewed political scientist Francis Fukuyama, best known for his book The End of History and the Last Man, and asked him what advice he had for young people in this age of growing uncertainty. Emanuel Pastreich: Many young people feel trapped these days. They find themselves in a ...
We are not seeing a "universalization of Western liberal democracy" and free-market capitalism, as Francis Fukuyama predicted after the fall of the Soviet Union. State-linked forces are major actors in international economics, and the geopolitical benefits they render their controlling governments mean they ...
For years, Davos was a reflection of the world that Francis Fukuyama proclaimed had reached the “end of history,” a community of nation-states drawn ever closer by trade and liberal-democratic values. That might have been true about the history that was made in 1989 and immediately afterwards.

Few political theorists have inspired as much discussion, admiration or ire as Francis Fukuyama. In 1992, Fukuyama famously predicted that the collapse of the Soviet Union signalled a global regression towards liberal democracies, signalling an “end of history” as we knew it. Twenty-six years later, with ...
Is the end of democracy nigh? This question is not new. Indeed, after Francis Fukuyama controversially wrote that humankind had reached the end of history, the debate has shifted more significantly towards the clash of civilisations and the threatening demise of democracy. Fukuyama thought that with the ...
US-led economic globalisation and the third wave of democratisation, with America in the vanguard, led Francis Fukuyama to proclaim the “end of history”. America's confidence and swagger in its strategic prowess reached a peak. With US self-confidence at a high, Sino-US relations grew strong. The two ...
Francis Fukuyama was embarrassingly wrong to suggest in 1989 that we had reached 'the universalisation of western liberal democracy'. But his talk of a post-ideological world isn't so easily dismissed. If you can discern an overarching shape to history, then either you're some sort of religious fanatic or ...
Healthier, wealthier, happier. These are new year resolutions we aspire for, yet many face frustrations and end up gaining the weight that we wanted to lose! What do you do? This new column, Flourish & Prosper, asks practical questions and opens with the view that there are common-sense, ethical ...
Q: Francis Fukuyama the contemporary political theorist used to be an ardent supporter of liberal capitalism. But in 2014, he wrote “Political Order and Political Decay” to modify his earlier position. In regard with the US's presidential elections and the rise of Clinton and Bush families in the political scene of ...
Ideologist Francis Fukuyama identified this collapse as 'End of History and the Last Man' in his widely read book which had the same title. Incumbent Russian President Vladimir Putin identified it as a 'catastrophe'. When the global financial crisis of 2007 /08 blasted the three main centres of capitalism, ...
They may have bought into the “end of history” narrative that political scientist Francis Fukuyama crowed about after the implosion of the Soviet Union in 1991 — a world where free market capitalism rules. Fortunately, one need not defend every crime of the Soviet Union or East Germany before advocating ...
By that time, a majority of the Senate believed the war had been a mistake, and so did a number of key intellectual supporters of the campaign, like Francis Fukuyama. Many people voted for Barack Obama for president in 2008 precisely because he opposed the Iraq War. Today, the United States and North ...
In a recent UN speech, the president of Czech Republic characterized the world as precariously between the harmonious “utopian” democratic liberalism of Francis Fukuyama's End of History and Samuel Huntington's “realistic” Clash of Civilizations. In any case, the current situation is disorder to the point ...
Everyone on it seems convinced that they're en route to a stunning market democracy in a post-Cold War world where political differences and ideological struggles have lost their relevance, where as American political theorist Francis Fukuyama famously put it in 1989, the “end of history” is in sight. “Today ...
Francis Fukuyama laid down the future ideology of the west in his 1989 essay and subsequent (1992) book, The End of History and the Last Man, a tome that might as well have been titled, “The West: we're number 1, so why try harder?”. The results are plain for all to see; Trump, Erdogan, Xi, Kim Jong-un ...
In this sense, he is a local expression as well as a pioneer of an ongoing global phenomenon: the rebellion against liberal democratic discourse that Francis Fukuyama had declared as the “end of history” in the early 1990s. Counterrevolutionaries aren't always clear about what their next moves are, but ...

The latest writers to try to nail down the slippery nature of paint on canvas are Julian Bell and Andrew Marr. Bell's What is Painting? first appeared in 1999 when, in an echo of Francis Fukuyama, it seemed that painting as well as history had finally had its day, vanquished by conceptualism and installation ...
In 1989, the year the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union began to come apart, the historian Francis Fukuyama proclaimed an “end to history.” For Fukuyama, the eclipse of the USSR meant the political and ideological triumph of American-style liberal capitalism. Two hundred years after the French ...
