Robin Niblett - The New Cold War

  • Sunday 28 April, 6pm
  • Tickets From £9
  • Main Theatre

How the contest between the US and China will shape our century, a crystal-clear account of contemporary global geopolitics.

Robin Niblett, former Director at Chatham House, brings an urgent and essential assessment of the global contest between the US and China to our attention. 

The contest between America and China is global and unbridgeable, and encompasses all major instruments of statecraft - economic, political and military. It has its tinder box: Taiwan. Both protagonists are working hard to draw allies to their side from across the world. 
How we manage this contest will determine not only whether there is still space for international cooperation to deal with our many global challenges, from the climate emergency to the technological revolution, but also who will lead the twenty-first century and, quite simply, the course of all our futures.
