Conference: Russia and China: Architects of a New Global Order? Interests, Strategies, and Prospects for Conflict and Cooperation : Wednesday, April 10, 2013
KU Union, University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS
8:00am-5:00pm (Program coming soon)
China's military, economic, and political rise and Russia's comeback in regional and global affairs have become, arguably, the most important geopolitical realignments of the last two decades. Many envision that the strategic orientation, opportunities for cooperation, and possible future tensions between Moscow and Beijing could shift the balance of power in international relations and global problem solving. The reasons for the growing importance of Russia and China in global politics are manifold: their size, their military and nuclear potential, their economies, and, most importantly, global ambitions. What is less obvious is how collaborative or competitive the Sino-Russian relations will be and what the implications are for global and regional security, multi-literalism, U.S. foreign policy interests, among many other factors.
The goal of the conference is to describe, examine, and understand how the dynamics of Sino-Russian relations affect or are likely to affect geographical and issue-areas of international relations, and the shifts that have been happening or are likely to happen in global politics.
Sponsored by the combined area and international studies centers at the University of Kansas (East Asian; Russian, East European, and Eurasian; Global and International Studies) together with the Foreign Military Studies Office and the Cultural Knowledge Consortium at Ft. Leavenworth.
