"Competitive Interdependence” defines U.S.-Chinese relations. The Pentagon has identified China as is primary “near-peer” competitor in the 21st century, and even as the two powers share many interests (economic, climate, Islamist challenges and more,) the two nations are locked in an arms race, are engaged in competitive diplomacy, and are dealing to manage military tensions.

To learn more about the forces driving U.S. and Chinese policies and ways that we can build toward peaceful common security between these great powers, join us for a public forum with:

Robert Ross: Professor of political science at Boston College associate of the Fairban Center for Chinese Studies at Harvard University and  one of the foremost American specialists on Chinese foreign and defense policy and U.S.-China Relations

Duncan McFarland: Member of the planning group of United for Justice with Peace (Boston). He first visited China in 1981 and has since been involved in China tours, journalism and discussion groups.
