Sino-U.S. relations are approaching a low point. With tensions building on the trade front and the increased risk of a confrontation in the South China sea, will Thucydides’ trap be sprung? Can the world’s two super powers move forward peacefully?
Guest lecturer, John Doughty, will examine five key historical events in China’s past which may provide a guidepost for future economic and military relations between the two countries. Further, he will discuss the ongoing trade war between China and the U.S. as well as Chinese military developments.
As America increasingly looks inward, the probability of Chinese efforts to cement their position as a global economic and military leader has risen. Will America pivot to meet this challenge? The answer to this question could have profound implications for humankind.
