    Welcome to Disrupted Asia: Navigating the Global Order of Tomorrow, a podcast series by FES in Asia- where Asia's and Europe’s leading experts tackle some of the most pressing questions around the changing geopolitical environment and how this is shaping the global order of tomorrow.

    Over the last decade, Asia has seen enormous physical and digital infrastructure connectivity projects. They have become both key pillars and levers of competition and cooperation. To unpack the geopolitical implications of these projects, we spoke with Dr Moritz Rudolf, author of the book Belt and Road Initiative: The Implications for the International Order. He is the founder of Eurasia Bridges and currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Yale Law School’s Paul Tsai China Center.

    Welcome to Disrupted Asia: Navigating the Global Order of Tomorrow, a podcast series by FES in Asia- where Asia's and Europe’s leading experts tackle some of the most pressing questions around the changing geopolitical environment and how this is shaping the global order of tomorrow.

    A year and a half into the pandemic, the systemic implications of the crisis are engendering major shifts and, some will argue, sowed the seeds for transformative political, economic and social change. This is bookended by a changing geopolitical landscape – particularly in Asia – and the emergence of a new global order. To make sense of this, we speak with Marc Saxer, Head of FES Asia Department in Berlin.
