ABOUT THE SESSION
We would love for you to join us online for our Master Class – ‘Geopolitics’ by Professor Henry Pascoe.
This lecture will consider major issues in contemporary geopolitics, with a focus on Asia. Topics covered will include the rise of China, the impact of new technologies, frictions in international trade and global institutions, climate change, global health, and the belt and road initiative. We will focus on using the insights of recent research to better understand these pressing geopolitical issues.
