Read a summary of this discussion here.

The second installment of the Edgerton Series on Responding to a Rising China, featuring a panel discussion on the recent Asia Society-UCSD report, Course Correction: Toward an Effective and Sustainable China Policy, in partnership with Asia Society Southern California, the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands, and UC San Diego’s 21st Century China Center. 

The report offers recommendations for American policymakers on finding the balance between seeking common interest, while pushing back against China’s increasingly assertive policies on trade, economics, security, global governance, human rights, and overseas influence activities. The panel is comprised of some of the nation’s foremost China experts.

The Edgerton Series on Responding to a Rising China aims to provide proactive and forward-looking solutions to some of the most complex local, regional, and global issues facing the United States and China today, through regular engagement in debates and discussions with the foremost experts in Chinese affairs. The Edgerton Series is made possible by generous support from the Edgerton Foundation. We thank Dr. Bradford and Ms. Louise Edgerton for their continued support of and dedication to the Pacific Council.
