June 10, 2014 – Milan, Italy: FEEM Lecture “Insights from China: Leadership, Policies, New World Balance”, by Jean-Christophe Iseux von Pfetten, Royal Institute of East-West Strategic Studies
On June 10, 2014, FEEM organised at its headquarters in Milan a Lecture on "Insights from China: Leadership, Policies, New World Balance", held by Jean-Christophe Iseux von Pfetten. Over the last ten years China has achieved economic supremacy in the Asian region and has gained a pivotal role in understanding ongoing worldwide geostrategic scenarios. The many economic analyses that have investigated its rising hegemony have however failed to address the dynamics and processes behind its social structure, particularly as concerns the potential role of the new élite in renewing world power.
Prof. Jean-Christophe Iseux von Pfetten, first Caucasian member of the Upper-House of Chinese Parliament and advisor to the Communist Party, presents a unique vision of the role played by the new Chinese élites in the definition of policies for a new consolidated world governance: economic growth, energy needs and use of natural resources, foreign policy and strategic alliances. A privileged viewpoint to understand the geostrategic consequences ahead.
