Session 3: Is China destined to rule the world? with Ambassador Christopher Hill
The economic boom in China has created a significant world power and revived the Chinese perception of filling their rightful place at the top of the world order, economically and politically. What does this mean for the United States and the rest of the world?
Session 4: Is the Post War Order Collapsing? with Jamie Metzl
Since World War II, and especially the collapse of the Soviet Union, there has been a relatively consistent world order. This is now being brought into question. Each of the previous sessions will cover pieces, but this presentation will provide an integrated, worldwide view.
