China is revolutionising the world economy, but can it continue to rise peacefully - and can it do so without challenging American power or undermining Europe? Martin Jacques and Professor Arne Westad, LSE, will consider these questions in a roundtable discussion entitled 'Will the 21st Century be China's?' at the School on Tuesday 6 March.
Martin Jacques is a visiting research fellow at LSE's Asia Research Centre and a columnist for The Guardian. He is presently completing a book on the global meaning and impact of the rise of China. Professor Odd Arne Westad is convenor of the Department of International History at LSE and director of the Cold War Studies Centre.
Professor Barry Buzan, also of the Department of International Relations at LSE, will chair this event.
Will the 21st Century Be Chinese? Is on Tuesday 6 March at 6.30-8pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
