Research Group: Managing Strategic Competition

The downturn in U.S.-China relations since 2016 has raised the specter of a new cold war. The initiative has sponsored three workshops with leading U.S. and Chinese scholars to address the peace and security implications of the new constellation.

This work, led by Initiative Managing Director Dennis Wilder and Senior Fellow Evan Medeiros, has converged around the theme of “Managing Strategic Competition.” In April 2019 they and co-convener Wang Jisi of Peking University brought together leading scholars in Washington, DC, to develop a shared research agenda and joint book project on the topic.
