In this discussion, Hussein Askary, Vice-Chairman of the Belt and Road Institute in Sweden (BRIX) with Stephen Brawer, the Chairman of BRIX, explore the common grounds for a dialogue of cultures between China and the West.

The discussion tries to answer the questions:

  • Is there a basis for a “community of a shared future for mankind” or we should just be interested in pragmatic trade in goods and services?
  • What are the historical precedents for such a dialogue?
  • Why did earlier attempts fail?
  • Do the Chinese understand all the internal dynamics and nuances of Western history?
  • Why the work of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz is so relevant now?
  • Why is that relevant for the world situation today?
