Heightened global economic integration as well as improvements in communications and transportation have provided global stakeholders with greater influence in political centers such as Washington, DC. The U.S. capital has become a global hub for academics, policymakers, and diplomats from around the world to exchange ideas about global challenges and to vie for influence.  
 
Carnegie–Tsinghua’s Chen Qi will host a discussion with Kent Calder about his recent book, Asia in Washington: A Dynamic Global City. Calder will examine how rising powers in Asia are exercising their economic clout and political influence to impact debates in Washington about global governance and the structure of the international order.

This event is not open to media.
