Irene Giner-Reichl in conversation with Yan Xuetong
Super Power Relations and Global Governance in Times of Digitalization
Under the Trump administration, super power politics exacerbated trade and technology rivalries between the United States and China. In our conversation we will explore, how digitalization is reconfiguring this bipolar rivalry. How will the moral leadership of nations – a term also coined by Prof. Yan – be impacted by the rise of the digital economy and cyber-security ? States reacted to the global health crisis of Covid-19 mostly with individual national responses, arguably at much greater cost than in a multilateral approach. What lies ahead for rules-based global governance as championed by – among others – the European Union, as the world seeks to emerge from the pandemic ? What role in the new (dis-)order for the African and Latin American continent ?
