Ikenberry’s piece was similarly unprecedented, starting from the assumption that the US is in relative decline and that China was on the path of continued rise, and could replace the United States as the most powerful nation in the world in the not-too-distant future. In fact, the bulk of the analysis in “The Rise of China” focusses not on China, but rather on how the US and the West should respond to China’s rise by ensuring the integration of China more fully into the liberal international order, into the established multilateral arrangements, that carry the imprint of Western values, norms and principles – and through which, the US and the West can continue to exert majority influence (within academic circles, Ikenberry carried this research further, with Mastanduno and Wohlforth, refining the arguments, especially on the dynamics of unipolarity, and its effects on the balance of power, and alliance behavior of satisfied states versus revisionist states (2009)).

The alliance has expanded eastwards and has been involved in remote areas such as Afghanistan, which is quite exceptional for a self-defense organization. Yet Biscop does not believe that NATO will expand itself into a global alliance or transform itself into a global alliance of democracies. Instead, he argues that the future of the alliance will most likely be a European one, since the rise of China and India has prompted the US to “pivot” to Asia where it does not need NATO to act. He thus predicts that NATO will be mostly a service provider for Europe, for operations in its broader neighborhood.
