U.S.-China Dialogue 2020

Since 2016 U.S.-China relations have undergone a steady, if uneven decline. Across a range of issues, from trade and security to health and the environment, the U.S. and Chinese governments have moved towards competition and even confrontation. From the COVID-19 pandemic to the U.S. presidential election, 2020 has emerged as a pivotal year. Over the coming months this dialogue series will bring together leading experts from both countries to discuss current dynamics and potential ways forward.

The series is hosted by Georgetown University's Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues and the Asian Studies Program in the Walsh School of Foreign Service. Evan Medeiros and Michael Green serve as co-conveners.
