The seminar aims at providing a framework for understanding the nexus between hegemony and world order with a present-day focus on the dialectic relationships between the US-led/West-based existing world order and the emerging world order brought about by the rise of China and other emerging powers. The emerging powers are reshaping the world order characterized by “interdependent hegemony”. The proposed concept of “interdependent hegemony” explains that the hegemonic structure of the existing world order, including its norms and values, material wealth and institutions is in an increasingly intertwined interconnection and co-existence with the emerging world order. There exists a dialectic nexus between the rise of the emerging powers and the existing world order as an interdependent dynamic process of mutual challenge, mutual constraint, and mutual accommodation. The future world order will neither be based on the domination and universalization by one single country or one core civilization, nor will it be replaced by alternative hegemonic structure seemingly favored by the emerging powers. Hegemony of world order still exists, but it exists in a form of “interdependent co-existence”.
