“The Decline of the West”: What Is It, and Why Might It Matter? - AsiaGlobal Papers No. 1

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. This paper analyses these developments by putting them in historical context, considering what was distinctive about the “rise of the West”, and explaining why the relative decline of American influence may prove so consequential.

Keywords: United States, China, Hegemony, Asia Pacific, Bilateral Relation
