U.S.-China University Think Tank Dialogue

Competitive Co-Existence and U.S.-China Relations
Oct. 4-5, 2019 | UC San Diego

The relationship between the United States and China is the most important, difficult and vital bilateral relationship in the world today. Given the rapid changes taking place in U.S.-China relations, the question of how to preserve a stable relationship between the two nations while also competing with each other has never been more urgent.

This dialogue brings together Chinese and American scholars and policy experts to examine how historical examples of great-power rivalry such as the Cold War can illuminate the U.S.-China dynamics of competition in the age of globalization and economic interdependence. Participants will draw on their research to examine both the lessons of the Cold War and the implications of economic integration for the U.S.-China relations. The dialogue will draw out policy implications from such discussions.

The theme of the inaugural meeting in June 2016 is on the domestic influences on U.S.-China relations, covering such topics as the public opinion, economic interests, as well as policy process and legislative politics.
