The New Geopolitics of Asia: Why the Old Order Is Unsustainable and What Might Replace It

Chatham House, London

Asia Programme

Participants

Professor Hugh White, Professor of Strategic Studies, Australian National University
Chair: Dr John Swenson-Wright, Head, Asia Programme, Chatham House

Overview

The simmering tensions in Asia today presage a major shift in the regional strategic order. The speaker will argue that Obama’s ‘pivot’ to Asia, intended to forestall that shift and preserve US primacy, is unlikely to succeed. The key questions to be explored at this event are: what kind of new order is likely to emerge? What can the rest of us do to shape it to protect our interests? What, in particular, can Australia and Britain do? 

THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL AND REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
