The Value of Values: Reconsidering the Role of Human Rights in U.S.-China Relations
The Wilson Center Kissinger Institute hosts a panel discussion of the role of human rights in U.S.-China relations.
Issues of ideology, values, and human rights are again moving to the top of the United States’ China agenda and underlie many frictions in U.S.-China relations. The competing virtue narratives and disparate systems of the United States and China fuel suspicions in the military, economic, and global governance spheres. Please join us for an examination of values, rights, and ideals in the U.S.-China relationship and in the evolution of regional and world orders.
