Lunchtime Talk

Hegemonic Transition?: The Lessons of History regarding the Shifting Power Dynamics of Asia

This is not the first time that the world has undergone hegemonic transitions. But what can the past tell us about what the future holds and how can we prepare for such dynamic changes? With the relative waning of US dominance in Asia, a political order is emerging as can be seen by an increasingly assertive and confident China that is not content with the status quo. As a global power, China seek to challenge the existing order by expanding its sphere of influence. This can be clearly seen in its recent actions in the East and South China Seas. By learning from the lessons of history, this talk will discuss the significance of this transformation and what it means for the future of Asia.
