Fair Multilateralism: An Answer to the Crisis of Western Capitalism and the Rise of China

Pierre Defraigne - Executive Director, Madariaga - College of Europe Foundation

26 November 2010, Hangzhou, China

In this speech Pierre Defraigne discusses the multilateralisation of the international economic system, the rise of China and the crisis of Western capitalism. Looking at the history of market capitalism and the economic role and position of the European Union, the United States and China, Defraigne argues that multilateralism - through a fairer international economic order - is the best way of dealing with international and regional instabilities and safeguarding prosperity.

The speech was originally delivered at the Centre for European Studies, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China on the 26th November 2010.
