Anlin Ku Lecture - Jamie Metzl: Rising China and the Shifting Geopolitics of Asia

Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 5:00 p.m.
Venue: JO 2.604
Admission: Free
Season: 2017-18

Fast-rising China is not just changing Asia, it is fundamentally transforming the global order. China’s economic growth, military expansion, aggressive behavior in the South and East China Seas, growing presence around the world, and increasingly emboldened foreign policy present a growing challenge to the US-led global system created in the aftermath of the Second World War. With America less able to serve as guarantor of the international system, and Europe incapable of realizing a coordinated foreign policy strategy and unwilling to invest sufficiently in military readiness, efforts to address major crises, promote a single set of rules governing the global economy, and support human rights around the world are faltering. Living in a post-American world will have enormous consequences and touch every aspect of our lives. Metzl explores the key drivers of our fundamentally transforming world, what it will mean for global politics, economics, and culture, and what kinds of collective action will be required to lay a foundation for a stable future.

Jamie Metzl, Senior Fellow of the Atlantic Council and syndicated columnist, is an expert on Asian Affairs who appears regularly on CNN and other national and international media. He is also a futurist and novelist who examines the implications of research in biotechnology and human genetic enhancement.
