With a political transition underway in China and a presidential election in the United States, the bilateral relationship between the two countries is taking on additional importance both in domestic politics and international relations. To help us better understand some of these issues and the political ramifications of them, we have an outstanding panel to lead our discussion.
-Professor Paul Bolt from the Department of Political Science at the Air Force Academy is a well recognized expert on Chinese foreign policy with a particular interest in China-Taiwan relations.
-Professor John Williams from the Department of History at Colorado College has spent much of his academic career studying Chinese domestic politics and political succession.
-Professor Thomas Mahnken from the Naval War College was for several years a senior official in the Department of Defense and is now focusing his attention on the modernization efforts of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and what this modernization may mean for China’s relations with other countries in East Asia and with the United States.
Please plan to join us for this extremely important discussion on U.S.-China relations.
