  • China’s Rise, Deglobalization and the Future of Indo-Pacific Governance

    China’s Rise, Deglobalization and the Future of Indo-Pacific Governance

    International politics has shifted from unipolarity to bipolarity. This is accompanied by rising China-US strategic rivalry fuelled by incompatible visions of international governance. Meanwhile, social discontent is widespread around the world, which stems from unequal distribution of globalization’s costs and benefits. These two trends are reducing the prospects for global security and prosperity, leaving countries to fend for themselves in an increasingly polarized state-centric order.

    In this AsiaGlobal Paper, Professor David Arase discusses the potential impact of these developments on the future of the Indo-Pacific region.

  • “The Decline of the West”: What Is It, And Why Might It Matter?

    “The Decline of the West”: What Is It, And Why Might It Matter?

    The international order created under the auspices of “American hegemony” appears to be unraveling during the erratic and nationalistic leadership of Donald Trump, and the growing geopolitical and geoeconomic competition between the US and China.
