An American Century or an Asian Century?

LSE IDEAS Public Lecture Series on Asia Rising

Tuesday 18 February 2014, 6.30 - 8.00pm, Sheikh Zayed Theatre, NAB
Speaker: Professor John Ikenberry; Discussant: Professor Michael Cox; Chair: Dr Kirsten Schulze

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? Many think they may know the answer. This team of three distinguished analysts will argue that the answer may be even more complex and significant than current protagonists in the debate believe.
