Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

Challenging the widespread view that China will rival or displace the United States as the world’s leading power, Gurtov explores China’s domestic and international strengths, revealing a country with serious shortcomings as the next global leader. Have the costs of rapid economic development created an underlying insecurity about the country’s future stability? Will positioning China as a looming threat to the US invite a new Cold War? Or could a new era of openness result in renewed cooperation around climate change, space exploration, territorial disputes, trade issues and other big picture concerns?
