About this event

Since Marco Polo, the West has waited for the “Asian Century.” Today, the world believes that Century has arrived. Yet from China’s slumping economy to war clouds over the South China Sea, and from environmental devastation to demographic crisis, Asia’s future is increasingly uncertain. Far from being a cohesive powerhouse, the Indo-Pacific is a fractured region threatened by stagnation and instability, in need of greater economic reform, more security cooperation, and more responsive government. What role can the United Kingdom, Europe, and the United States play in managing risk in Asia over the coming decade? Will President Trump pursue a policy of confrontation and economic mercantilism, while reducing America’s security commitments?

War, stagnation and the risks to the world’s most dynamic region (2017).
