In much of the world, the liberal international order is under attack. The transatlantic democracies have been beset by populist forces and self-doubt. Yet advanced democracies in Asia seem to have avoided some of these challenges even though the future battle for the future of the liberal international order will likely take place in their region. Will countries in the Indo-Pacific region continue to support international cooperation, democracy, open economics, and individual determination? Or will rivalries, power dynamics, and politics in the region lead to a backsliding on the core principles that have shaped the global landscape for the last fifty years? How will the contest of ideas between democracies in the region and the increasingly aggressive authoritarianism of China play out? What is the role of transatlantic democracies in maintaining the strength of the liberal international order in this vital region?
