Peace and Security

Georgetown’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, convened by Managing Director of the Georgetown U.S.-China Initiative Professor Dennis Wilder in collaboration with Dr. Zhao Kejin of Tsinghua University, 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. The workshops will be held over several semesters, alternating between Washington and Beijing. Learn more about the dialogue and related publications in the sections below.
