Great Decisions: China's Foreign Policy

Events | Great Decisions

China has gone to great lengths to emphasize the “peaceful” nature of its meteoric rise. Yet few dispute that China is the dominant regional power in Asia – and in recent years Beijing began to flex its muscles regionally in order to advance its strategic interests. What does the rapid rise of this new superpower mean for other countries in the region, and are there potential points of conflict with the U.S. as it “pivots” to Asia? Join this talk with Ron Tammen, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Mark O. Hatfield School of Government.
