February 2 – China and the U.S.
For the past ten years, the United States and China have been locked in a competition for who has the greatest global influence. One major point of contention is the status of Taiwanese sovereignty, which has become even more relevant recently with the possibility that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine may prompt China to take similar action regarding Taiwan. How will the United States engage a China which is increasingly seeking to expand its sphere of influence?
Thursdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. beginning Thursday, January 19, running through Thursday, March 9 in the Koch Building at the Aspen Institute.
Registration is now closed.
