Asia Society Hong Kong Center is proud to present the Chairman’s Dialogue Series, a specially curated series of marquee events bringing together distinguished guests from around the world for conversations with Ronnie Chan, Chairman of Asia Society Hong Kong Center.
In this conversation, Mr. Chan will be joined by Professor Ngaire Woods, founding Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government and Professor of Global Economic Governance at Oxford University.
Much public discourse in recent years has focused on the concepts of de-globalization, economic nationalism, the return of geopolitics, great power competition between China and the United States, and the possibility of a new Cold War. Is the world truly witnessing the end of globalization as we know it? What do these geopolitical shifts mean for the ‘rules-based international order’ built in the aftermath of World War II? Can multilateral institutions remain relevant in an era of increasing divisions and shifting alignments? In dialogue with Mr. Chan, Professor Woods will explore these questions and what these developments mean for the future of globalization and the ‘rules-based international order’.
Professor Ngaire Woods is the founding Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government and Professor of Global Economic Governance at Oxford University. Her research focuses on how to enhance the governance of organisations, the challenges of globalisation, global development, and the role of international institutions and global economic governance.
