Public Lecture presented by College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Massey University, Wellington Campus.

Thierry Balzacq is a Visiting Fellow at the Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy (APCD), at the Australian National University. In 2016, he was awarded a Francqui Research Chair (Belgium's most prestigious academic title) at the University of Namur, and elected Visiting Professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). He is researching grand strategy and international rituals.

Grand Strategy integrates diplomacy and strategy in order to deal with large-scale, long-term international challenges, including security threats, economic prosperity, and international status and reputation. In recent years, the ability of states to formulate a Grand Strategy has come under severe strain.

For example, states must cope with shrinking resources to allocate to the ever-growing number of challenges. While these factors apply differently to each nation, they impinge on states’ capacity to articulate let alone execute a Grand Strategy.

What, then, should be done? The aim of this talk is to address this question, including defining what grand strategy is, how it is articulated and assessing the conditions under which it can be effectively
