China is challenging the unipolar global order under American hegemony. Increasing nationalistic rhetoric about decoupling and deglobalization, and tit-for-tat trade and other sanctions have heated up the strategic rivalry. In this first AsiaGlobal Papers webinar, David Arase of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and Mark Beeson of the University of Western Australia discuss the weakening of US hegemony and Washington’s withdrawal from multilateral engagement, the shift in international politics from a unipolar to a bipolar or multipolar framework, and the geopolitical and economic consequences these shifts will have for the US, China and the Indo-Pacific region.
