The U.S. and China: Partners, Rivals, or Adversaries?

The National Committee on American Foreign Policy hosts a discussion of the U.S.-China relationship and it's future.

March 23, 2016 5:45pm to 8:00pm

The U.S. and China have the most consequential bilateral relationship in the 21st century international system. There are pressures on each side for cooperation and competition. Power politics, regional dynamics, history, and ideology influence how these pressures affect policy decisions. Much will depend on whether the leaders of the two countries find ways to build on common interests and manage differences. Join our four experts from the two countries as they discuss the complex relationship and how to build a peaceful future.
