China’s Pursuit of a New Asia-Pacific Security Architecture and Implications for U.S.-China Relations
April 5, 2016 @ 17:30 - 18:30Free
Join us Tuesday, April 5 at 5:30 at CSIS for a talk (in Chinese) by Dr. Zhexin (Tiger) Zhang, visiting fellow at the Freeman Chair, CSIS, on “China’s Pursuit of a New Asia-Pacific Security Architecture and Implications for U.S.-China Relations.”
Amid growing tensions over territorial disputes and increasingly confrontational security postures, Chinese leaders have been advocating for a new Asia-Pacific security architecture. What exactly is this architecture? Does it symbolize China’s growing ambition for regional hegemony or is it ultimately a response to America’s rebalance to Asia? What is China’s vision of such an architecture and how is it going to achieve it? What does this mean for U.S.-China relations?
This is clearly an important and timely event. We will also be announcing some new AMS initiatives at this event, so 不见不散！
