Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Will All Roads Lead to China?

Will All Roads Lead to China?

About the Event

China's military assertiveness and Belt and Road Initiative have awoken Western powers to up their game. In our event, Robert D. Kaplan, FPRI’s Robert Strausz-Hupé Chair in Geopolitics, sits down with leading global advisor Dr. Parag Khanna to discuss how Beijing could be setting itself up to fail. In Dr. Khanna’s recent article, he describes new, emerging coalitions among democratic states as well as local Asian powers to counter Chinese influence. Will the strategy work? Can conflict be avoided? What uncertain geopolitical chain reactions lie ahead?
