Upcoming Events

The rise of China’s power is a topic of interest throughout the world. Yet, assessing it in a systematic and empirical manner is always a daunting challenge. The Asan China Conference 2014 will feature sessions on China’s economic/soft power; conventional/nuclear military capabilities; and global, regional, and Chinese perspectives on China’s Power.

This year’s conference will gather together eminent scholars and experts from the United States, China, France, the United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, and Korea to place China’s growing power in perspective.

The conference will be organized around three major themes: (1) evaluating China’s power in each sector over the past three decades; (2) comparing China’s power with that of the United States; and (3) projecting, on the basis of the former two discussions, the future of China’s power for 2025.

We hope you will enjoy this opportunity to discuss the extent of China’s rise and its implications for the region and the world.
