Online International-Scientific Conference: Rivalry between USA and China for global hegemony

On 30th of June, at 12:00, St. Andrews Georgian University will host an online International-Scientific Conference: Rivalry between USA and China for global hegemony.

Online conference will be streamed on Google Meet.

Rivalry between China and USA has increased considerably after Donald Trump’s arrival to power.  Conflict between these two strongest states intensified and we have witnessed escalation of the quarrel for global leadership. Although China repeatedly claims that it does not have any hegemonic ambitions and does not intend to replace US hegemony in the world, its ambitious economic projects illustrate that its ultimate objective is to become a global hegemon.  From the history we now that the rising power first tries to dominate the region where it is located and then it expands its power globally.  USA is doing its best to prolong its hegemony in the world, but will it have sufficient power and resources in the future to halt the China’s domination of the world?  Will China become a world police force?  Is the war between USA and China inevitable for global leadership?

The goal of this conference is to answer these questions and analyze Sino –American relations.  Also, the aim of this event is to determine those factors that cause the escalation of conflict between China and USA. The event will facilitate the exchange of ideas between scientists from different countries.
