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 emerged as a pivotal year.  This dialogue series brought together leading experts from both countries to discuss changing dynamics and potential ways forward.

The series was 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 served as co-conveners.
