The speakers will examine the phenomenon of Chinese resurgence and offer their views on what aspects of China's traditions survive in its international behaviour today; its potential to exercise cultural as well as economic leadership; its role as a mentor to the non-European world; whether China is changing the world more than the world is changing China; Western responses and the political, strategic and social effects of the economic shift to China and the other BRICs.
