Preparatory Workshop for Conference: Beyond Traditional Geopolitics

All day
Through August 25, 2013

Aug. 24

Few policy-related questions within international relations elicit as much interest as the changing dynamic between the United States and China. This conference hopes to firmly root the discussion of the Sino-American relationship, as well as the role of China and East Asia within the broader context of international relations scholarship. In addition, this program hopes to engage leading Chinese scholars and policymakers who are also working on the same issues. This conference will focus on four realms of Chinese international relations: The U.S. and China Balance of Power, Nuclear Weapons, Naval Power and Chinese Regional Policy.

This August 2013 workshop allowed participants in November’s conference to improve their intended presentations.

Organizers: Robert A. Pape (Department of Political Science), with Xuefeng Sun (Department of International Relations, Tsinghua University).
