Managing strategic competition in the Indo-Pacific: How to avoid replacing one hegemony with another

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

    Abstract

    As Chinese power rises across the broader Asian region, and the world comes to terms with uncertainties and anxieties related to Donald Trump’s America, it is easy to leap to certain conclusions. One is that we are seeing the end of the United States as the decisive strategic actor in Asia. Another is that the extension of China’s apparent economic largesse across the region—embodied in the so-called Belt and Road initiative—is a welcome and stabilising development. A third false conclusion is that Europe can afford to pay only modest attention to what happens in a strategic and security sense on the other side of the world.
