Following the successful completion of University of Chicago-Peking University 2015 Summer Institute on International Relations Theory and Methods, Professor Robert Pape and his colleagues from the University of Chicago, University of Wisconsin and George Institute of Technology were invited to a conversation with their counterparts at the PLA Academy of Military Sciences on August 7, 2015. They were able to engage in a singular discussion of issues of international importance. Topics of discussion included security issues in the South China Sea and Korean Peninsula, as well as future prospects for U.S. and Chinese cooperation on security issues. This is the fourth time that the PLA Academy of Military Sciences has hosted such a discussion with scholars, and all involved came away with a greater respect for the points of view across the table.
