The Rise of China and the East Asian Regional Order

USC held a roundtable discussion in April 2011 on the rise of China and its implications for US-China relations.

February 13, 2013

With the rise of China at the dawn of the 21st century, there is a complex power transition taking place in the world in general and in East Asia in particular, where both the United States and China struggle to expand their respective influences without disrupting the foundation of prosperity and stability of the region.  Will this transition continue to be a peaceful one where the American-led liberal institutions remain intact and influential?  Or will the changing power balance gradually lead to disruption of regional and global order?  By inviting the four prominent scholars of international relations and Chinese foreign policy, the forum addressed one of the most critical questions of this century.
