Burgeoning multipolarity does not have to be at odds with an inclusive and mutually beneficial global system. Rising powers like China are equipped to act as responsible stakeholders. And the European Union, which seems to be regaining its confidence, can still be counted on to play a constructive role.In 2009, when global GDP contracted, the economies of the world's two most populous countries, China and India, grew at rates above 8 percent.The countries that are unraveling the liberal order today are those that invested the most political capital in creating it. According to Xi, countries should "refrain from pursuing their own interests at the expense of others".The Chinese authorities are well-aware of how much their country has benefited from becoming deeply integrated into the global economy.In doing so, however, China is not openly calling into question the foundations of the liberal order.At this time of uncertainty and disharmony, the EU is in a position to assume a leading role.
