In IFAT’s latest English podcast, the Insititute’s senior research fellow, Gergely Varga explores the future role and challenges of the US in South Asia with foreign experts Matt Ferchen, program director of Mercator Institute in Berlin, Sandor Kusai, Hungary’s former ambassador to Beijing, and Katarzyna Nawrot, Assistant Professor at Poznan University.

How will the rise of China influence the US’ regional power? Will Washington’s relations with allies in the region have to adapt to the competition? Will China squeeze the US out of the region, or will the US be able to limit China’s influence?”
