On March 5, 2021, Asia Power Watch Founder & Editor Nicolas Michelon and Contributor Miljan Radunovic were invited by Dr Chester Cabalza of Philippines’ International Development and Security Cooperation (IDSC) to join a round table discussing how hegemony is being fought over by the US and China, and how the World will adapt to it.
As the world bravely faces 2021, a year after the coronavirus pandemic made transformative impact on multiple dimensions of global governance, wreaking destruction on public health, competitive economics and Darwinian human survival – scholars and thinkers saw again the contours of world politics as constantly shifting, and how states understand and adapt to those changes is central to its success. While peoples’ lives are being transformed by an accelerated digital transformation, wealth of evidenced-based scholastic studies presents the rise of great power competition cascading into a multipolar international system that will lead to some kind of hegemonic transition. This change in the balance of power leads many to conclude that Pax Americana cannot endure its current position and is now being challenged by China’s power.
This webinar on “Hegemonic Transition: A Secured World Amid the Vaccine Revolution, Digital Transformation and Economic Competition” will reconfigure the narratives of the 21st century’s great makeover on post-truth phenomenon as experts from around the world will converge online to analyse and document it.
Thank you to Dr Cabalza and the entire team at IDSC for organizing this event, and to our esteemed co-guest speakers for the honour and pleasure to exchange views.
