Southeast Asia, the United States and China: Stumbling into the New World Order


About the Webinar

The world is in a state of transition. Southeast Asia is caught between the United States and China as these powers wrestle for regional and global dominance. This talk examines the impact of political, social and economic instability in the US on Washington’s ability to manage and fulfill its various security obligations in the Asia Pacific region. The argument is that Southeast Asian states need to pay close attention to what is happening within the US in order to properly position themselves in their relationships with China. The new world order that is gradually emerging may be born in considerable confusion and uncertainty.
