Ana Tomicic is a research associate at University College London. Her research focuses on the sociology of knowledge and higher education reform. She considers the specific ways and mechanisms through which Universities can act as drivers for social and economic transformation. Her present research builds on these interests by examining how knowledge management connects to urban development in the Lebanese context. She is primarily pursuing this interest through the “Creating Value” strand of the RELIEF Centre, contributing to the development of new models for assessing the value of successful community-driven projects in terms of job creation, health, well-being, and capacity for innovation. This research aspires to create new forms of inclusive growth and social and economic value for host and refugee communities. Before joining the IGP/RELIEF team, she worked as a researcher on interdisciplinary projects at La Sapienza University of Rome, at the University of Geneva and Masaryk University, exploring the role of universities in the global knowledge economy and how they can relate to broader processes of social change.
Looking past common prognostications, this article focuses on the conditions for an alternative possible future of China-U.S. relations, beyond the trade war or a new cold war. Its aim is to map out a possible future that would open up if the U.S. political system takes a leftward turn in 2020 or beyond.
