Nicola Casarini - Is China a boon or a threat for the West?

2015 - Meeting with Nicola Casarini

n September 21, 2015 the Italian Alumni of the Young Leaders program met Nicola Casarini, Senior Fellow for Asia at the Institute of International Affairs in Rome and non-resident Global Fellow at the Wilson Center of Washington.
Casarini focused his speech on the theme: "Is China a boon, or a threat, for the West?", a subject that was particularly relevant as China stocks had crashed and all Asian markets had suffered major losses during the summer.
Casarini's speech was also related to the theme of the San Francisco Young Leaders Conference, whose title was "Cooperation, Competition or Conflict? The Evolving Relationship between Asia and the West".
