[Virtual Event] Margaret K. Lewis: Criminalizing China

Join Margaret K. Lewis for her virtual talk on criminalizing China. 

April 29, 2020 11:30am to 1:00pm

The Department of Justice launched the China Initiative in November 2018 to counter national security threats emanating from the People’s Republic of China. The DOJ is not making up that there is a threat; it is, however, framing that threat in a way that is problematic. This talk will explore how the China Initiative is creating an over-inclusive conception of the threat as well as how the Initiative is concerning when assessed in light of the goals of deterrence, incapacitation, rehabilitation, and retribution.
