Key note speaker information:

The 2018 China Research Center Annual Lecture will be given by Dr. Thomas J. Christensen, Princeton University

Many see China as a rival superpower to the United States and imagine the country’s rise to be a threat to U.S. leadership in Asia and beyond. Thomas J. Christensen argues against this zero-sum vision. Instead, he describes a new paradigm in which the real challenge lies in dissuading China from regional aggression while encouraging the country to contribute to the global order. 

Theme: “China's Rise and the Challenge for American Security”
