About the lecture series: The West in an Asian Century, Professor Dominique Moisi

Hosted by King’s Policy Institute and the Department of Political Economy as part of King’s work on European policy,  the lecture series will explore the geopolitical and cultural transformations shaping the world today and the profound challenges facing the ‘West’ in the 21st century. Does the West still exist in any meaningful sense? Do we now live in an Asian century? How can and should the ‘West’ respond? Will these developments lead to a new, stable world order or to a period of prolonged instability and chaos? These questions and others will be addressed over the  five evening lectures.

Professor Dominique Moisi is a founder and senior advisor at the French Institute for International Relations (IFRI), a professor at Institute d’Etudes Politiques (Sciences Po), and will be a Visiting Professor in the Department of Political Economy, King’s College London from 2012. He is also a regular contributor to BBC News, France 24, Foreign Affairs, Project Syndicate and the Financial Times. Professor Moisi’s highly acclaimed book, ‘The Geopolitics of Emotion: How Cultures of Fear, Humiliation and Hope are Reshaping the World’ was published in 2009.
