Peace and Security

Georgetown University’s Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues addresses peace and security-related issues and opportunities for cooperation through research, teaching, and dialogue among Chinese and U.S. leaders from the public sector, business, and the academy.

Since fall 2017, research workshops on strategic trust between the United States and China, led by the initiative’s managing director, Dennis Wilder, have brought together groups of leading U.S. and Chinese scholars for dialogue and research around key academic and policy issues relating to the roles of China and the United States in the emerging international order, including in the areas of diplomacy, economics, trade, culture, environmental protection, and use of military force.

The goal of these workshops is to expand areas of common interest and to look for ways to minimize political friction between the world's largest and second-largest economies. Building on the foundation established by the workshops, the U.S.-China Research Group on Managing Strategic Competition was formed in fall 2019 to further policy-oriented research through dialogues alternating between Washington, D.C., and Beijing.
