The emergence of non-state actors with unprecedented and immediate access to global communication channels and weapons of mass destruction; the spotlight on pandemics, natural disasters and social revolutions in far-away places which both capture and lose the world’s attention in record time; and the fearful, reactive nature of government and public response to a seemingly-endless series of global crises all shape a larger framework of how to deal with the challenge of global change.
