Webinar on A New Era of Great Power Rivalry
When: 13 April 2021, 9:00-10:00am Hong Kong time (GMT+8)
Speakers: Danny Quah & Heiwei Tang
Sponsor: Asia Global Institute, University of Hong Kong
Great power competition has again forced its way into the consciousness of the global public. Nevertheless, the new round of competition is evolving with unprecedented uncertainties. The two most powerful states in the world, the United States and China, are expected to be at the centre of this contest. Based on his paper “Great Power Competition in the Marketplace for World Order”, Professor Danny Quah of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy will examine the competition between the great powers and the current state of the world order. Using the marketplace model, he will also demonstrate the application of the model to understand the role of Southeast Asian countries, such as Indonesia and India, in US-China relations. The presentation will be followed by a discussion and Q&A session moderated by Professor Heiwai Tang of the University of Hong Kong.
