Keele University, Claus Moser Research Centre, Room: CM0.12
The starting premise of this workshop is that we are currently experiencing significant shifts, economic and social transformations which may likely to constitute the beginning of a new historical phase of modern world system. The rise of East Asia to most dynamic region of the global economy and centre of accumulation pose potentially major challenges to our understanding of the modern world. We are hoping that this workshop will provide us an opportunity to discuss the following questions:
* To what extent do emerging powers represent a real threat to the US hegemony?
* How will a China/ India – US rivalry play out in the competition for energy resources?
* Will emerging economies repeat the environmental mistakes of their rich cousins?
