If China had an opportunity to refashion the global order, what would it change and what would it seek to accomplish? The PRC has benefitted enormously from participation in the liberal international order but dislikes certain features and will have an important voice in deciding what to retain, replace, or reengineer in the overdue effort to update arrangements made inadequate by their success. Fingar’s talk will examine systemic, historic, and situational factors likely to shape China’s objectives and expectations with respect to a post-American world.
