In the last 15 years, China has implemented a wide-ranging strategy of economic outreach and expansion of all its national capacities, including military and diplomatic capacities. Where the United States has taken a step back from multilateral trade agreements and discarded the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), China has made inroads through efforts like the Belt and Road Initiative and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). What are Beijing’s geopolitical objectives? What leadership and political conditions in each society underlie growing Sino-American tensions? What policies might Washington adopt to address this circumstance? Speaker Richard Bohr is an Emeritus Professor and Director of Asian Studies, College of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University. He holds a Ph.D. in Modern Chinese History and has devoted his professional career to promote relationships between Americans and Asians.
