Kindly register for this event by 13 June at *


As the world goes through radical shifts, we will explore UK, EU, US and partners' perspectives on how to strengthen our economic, democratic and security resilience in the context of complex engagement with China, the harmful effects of Russia’s war and future trends. We explore roadmaps to navigate the challenges ahead and position ourselves in a changing world.

A variety of open and highly significant questions will be discussed, including: How do we deescalate tensions and leverage more productive relations with China that protect our interests? Is intensified systemic competition and even confrontation inevitable? How do we strengthen economic security & deterrence and still keep the door open to cooperation? How concerning is Sino-Russia collaboration? Are UK, EU, US and regional partners aligned in their interests and strategies on this? What scope is there for better coordination? How can Europe (including the UK) & the US improve their influence and partnerships in the Indo-Pacific and Global South? How do we avoid a bifurcation of the West and the Rest? How helpful is the democracy/autocracy paradigm? How do we strengthen the effectiveness of multilateralism and rebalance institutions to reflect today's realities?

After discussion, we will open up the panel to points and questions from the floor so look forward to a dynamic interactive session. Chatham House rules will apply!
