The Impact of China’s Resurgence on Transatlantic Relations
Rosemary Foot, PhD, FBA, Professor of International Relations and Emeritus Fellow, St Antony’s College
China’s resurgence, particularly since the turn of the century, has had global repercussions, as any number of studies of this phenomenon attest. The longer-term implications for one of the most significant coalitions in global history – transatlantic relations – are potentially profound, and potentially profoundly disruptive. The China phenomenon is frequently depicted at official and unofficial levels as having put European-US ties under strain. This presentation explores the extent to which we are witnessing a slow fracturing in relations as a result of both a perception in the United States of the growing irrelevance of Europe, as well as Europe’s increased interest in being associated with China as it progresses towards becoming the world’s largest economy.
