There is a conjectural relationship between stability of projective manifolds and the existence of "canonical" Kahler metrics which arise through studing the metrics obtained by embedding the manifold into a sequence of large projective spaces. I will describe some of the progress that has been made in this field, and talk about some work in progress with Richard Thomas that generalise this to orbifolds through embeddings in weighted projective spaces.
