<Theme> A Prospect of the World Order: focusing on the “Thucydides’s Trap” argument

<Abstract> With the rapid rise of China accompanied by the US’s relative decline, the era of the US supremacy (hegemony) may be ending. There is an expectation that the US-China hegemonic competition, which might possibly entail a hegemonic war, may be coming. This is a crucial issue for East Asia. Will China be a (the) hegemon in the future? We will explore its prospect and come up with the tentative conclusion that it would not be likely. The reasons why that would be the case will be explained.
