Where are things going between the U.S. and China? Join China policy expert, Dr. Maochun ‘Miles’ Yu, for a highly topical discussion about the U.S. China relations in an increasingly turbulent world. Where to from here?
In this 3rd Distinguished Guest Scholar Program offered by Chesapeake Forum in honor of our Founder, John F. Ford, Dr. Yu will discuss the ideological, structural, and long-term forces shaping China’s geopolitical strategic intent. Clearly China’s actions are leading to raised concerns here in the U.S. as well as among our allies abroad.
Because the relationship between the U.S. and China is so complex, Dr. Yu will provide a broad overview of the threats associated with this near-peer competition– within the context of socio-economic capacities and vulnerabilities. He will also describe two State Department policies he initiated while serving as the Chief China Policy Advisor: “Broad Pushback against China” and “Principled Realism.”
Dr. Yu will command audience attention for approximately 30 minutes. He will then open up a question-and-answer period to address your questions regarding the Chinese Communist Party’s efforts to spread its global influence and foster new international norms. What does the future portend? How concerned should we be over Beijing’s authoritarian system at a time of diminishing American sovereignty and geopolitical influence?
What to expect: Gain a first-hand appreciation of China’s increased role in the world and the potential impact on the United States and world order, not to mention our day-to-day life.
