The Sino-American World Conflict

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Feb 19, 2020 | German Institute of Security and International Affairs , Peter Rudolf

In this article, Peter Rudolf of the German Institute of Security and International Affairs assesses the Sino-American conflict syndrome and its global effects. The competition for influence between the two global powers has engendered ideological antagonism that has recently become more pronounced on the U.S. side. The strategic rivalry is particularly pronounced along China’s maritime pe­riphery, due to perceptions in Washington that China intends to establish an exclusive sphere of influence in East Asia. The author argues that the intensifying strategic rivalry may lead to a structural world conflict which could trigger de-globalisation and the emergence of two orders under the thrall of the U.S. and China respectively.
