The world is tilting away from the West to the East, from the United States to China, from the Transatlantic to the Pacific. Or is it? LSE experts with very different answers to these questions will battle it out in an open forum.

He has held appointments at The Queen's University of Belfast (1972-1995), California State University at San Diego (1986), The College of William and Mary in Virginia (1987-1989), the Department of International Politics, Aberystwyth (1995-2001), The Catholic University of Milan (2003-2008), the University of Melbourne (2004-2005), and the Centre for Defence and Strategic Studies in Canberra, Australia (2004-2008).
Professor Westad is a professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and an expert on Chinese international affairs. He co-directs LSE IDEAS, the LSE's centre for diplomacy and strategy, is an editor of the journal Cold War History and co-editor of the forthcoming three-volume Cambridge History of the Cold War.
