|Speaker(s)||Jean-Pierre Lehmann, Emeritus Professor of International Political Economy, IMD|
As many of you know, events with Professor Lehmann always lead to exciting, thought-provoking and rich discussions and this time the main theme is The South China Sea & China’s “Peaceful” Rise?
Jean-Pierre Lehmann assesses the potential regional/global powder-keg that is the South China Sea by looking at the historical dynamics, including on how it fits into patterns of rising great powers. He reiterates the point he has made in several publications, that if China does succeed in achieving a “peaceful rise”, this will be totally unprecedented. Given the entirely new global paradigm emerging from China’s rise, he appeals for measures of confidence building and reflexion on conflict avoidance steps that might be taken. In what is a general global maelstrom, the South China Sea issue is the most critical.
Jean-Pierre Lehmann is Professor of International Political Economy at IMD and visiting professor in the Faculty of Business and Economics at Hong Kong University and at NIIT University in Neemrana, Rajasthan, India. He is also Founder of the Evian Group – “international coalition of corporate, government and opinion leaders, committed to fostering an open, inclusive, equitable and sustainable global market economy in a rules-based multilateral framework”. His areas of interest include global governance, globalization, trade and development, and business dynamics of Asia.
