The results of the 2020 United States presidential election will have an unprecedented impact on the future development of the Western-dominated international order, which, driven by the forces of globalization and the rise of China, has dangerously decayed over the last decade. 

After the U.S. elections, will the international order stand at a crossroad of facing a further acceleration of decay or not? What are the prospects for the U.S.–China relations – or for a New Cold War? What does the COVID-19 crisis imply for the U.S. in resuming the leadership role? And how do Germany, with its key position in Europe, and Japan, as China’s most important counterweight in East Asia, respond to the challenges in safeguarding the international order? How will their roles and options be affected by the U.S. election results? What can Germany and Japan achieve together? How can strategies such as the German Government policy guidelines on the Indo-Pacific region or the EU-Japan Strategic Partnership Agreement be assessed? 

To discuss these questions, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, the Japanese-German Center Berlin, the Asia Pacific Initiative, and the German Institute for International and Security Affairs would like to invite you and your colleagues to a
