The World According to China

We seem to be at a turning point in our history. While Putin’s Russia is showing its true face with the invasion of Ukraine, the other superpower, China, is also taking an increasingly defined position. This country, with its 1.4 billion inhabitants, is forecast to overtake the Unites States as a global economic power in the next 20 years. What will the world look like with China as economic leader? Backlight investigates the possible future scenarios for this new geopolitical center of the world from different perspectives. Will we then again fall into a cold war mindset in which two rival superpowers, the USA and China, come face to face as mortal enemies? Or will we realize in time that we are moving towards a multipolar world, where we will have to share the power in the world with each other?
