Event description

Description

With the crisis and decline of the US-led liberal international order, is a China-led international order possible? If so, what might be its distinctive features, norms and institutions? How might it affect the current system of multilateralism and global governance that has been in place since World War II? This lecture will also discuss the constraints on a China-led order and explore ways in which it can enmesh with the existing but changing world order as part of an emerging Multiplex World.
