The great defining debate of the 21st century now seems to revolve around one fundamental question: will the future belong to the new rising powers of Asia revolving around the great economic power-house called China or the old Transatlantic powers of the West still led by the United States? LSE IDEAS launches a series of public lectures in the coming Lent Term to explore the dynamism of two great powers, featured outstanding speakers including Michael Cox, John Ikenberry, Arne Westad, Wu Jianmin, Jonathan Fenby, Isabel Hilton and Simon Hix.
