NECE2020 Panel: China’s Moment? Or: A New Cold War in the Making?
China is flexing its muscles and seems to be confident about its new role as a major world power. Should (and can) the West “decouple” its political, economic and cultural links with China, or is there another way out of this new and dangerous confrontation?
For the NECE2020 Panel we were joined by Ian Johnson, Pulitzer prize winning former Beijing correspondent of the New York Times, and Zhang Junhua, Senior Associate at the European Institute for Asian Studies. The China Panel was moderated by Kristin Shi-Kupfer, Senior Associate Fellow at MERICS and Professor at Universität Trier.
