The dramatic ‘rise' of Asia appears to Europeans as a double-edged sword, perched between allure and anxiety.

• Prof. Ulrich Beck: "World at Risk: are Asia and Europe chasing the same dream or nightmare?"
• Isabel Hilton: "Future green superpowers: Chinese competition or cooperation?"
• Prof. Peter van der Veer: "Coping with Diversity in Europe, India and China"
• Prof. Wang Gungwu: "The China Effect in Asia and Europe"
• Prof. Aihwa Ong: "Science as the Heart of 'World-Class' Cities in Asia"
