Complete the triangle—US view on the role of Germany and China in global governance
Jackson Janes, President of AICGS
Thursday, November 6, 2014
A rising China is increasingly perceived as a strong contestant in global governance, challenging the presumed US leadership. China has shown that it wants to play on the international stage by its own rules. Europe and the US are inclined to adhere to existing international institutions. The different approaches can lead to conflicts in future global governance, despite the increasingly close economic ties between China, Germany and the US. Dr. Jackson Janes, president of the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS), will talk about the US perspective on the triangular relationship in the context of global governance. He will discuss the implications of the current Sino-German relationship for US policy. Additionally, he will explore how the Sino-German-US relationship can shape global governance in the coming years.
Admission: FCC members 100 RMB; non-members 150 RMB
