China and East Asia: Evolving Relations and
New Foreign Policy Options
Dates To Be Determined
Capito Hill Club
A central concern in the opening decades of the 21st Century will be the peaceful integration of China into the international system. As a potential great power, China’s relationship with the United States already presents a major challenge to Congress and the Obama Administration.
Historically, the rise of new or renewed great powers has often been accompanied by both internal and external turmoil. There is no question that the emergence of China as a truly global power will test the wisdom as well as the tenacity of U.S. policymakers.
Drawing upon the knowledge and experience of a diverse group of prominent experts on China and East Asia, this workshop will explore the social, political, and economic developments of contemporary China; the strengths and weaknesses of Chinese society; and the impact that this awakened society is having on the global economy and U.S. national security interests.

Well-chosen and placed speakers; especially value seasoned perspectives of those native to area; nicely paced, thoughtful, provocative and instructive – Middle East Seminar, unsigned, Department of Defense
On a daily basis, my focus is very narrow so its refreshing to discuss the world’s pressing issues as a “macro” level. It helps tie issues together and keeps the mind stimulated. Thanks? Europe Seminar, M. Ross, Department of Defense
This is a very informative and well rounded seminar. I learned very much from it and I appreciated all the speakers. The range of speakers definitely enlightened the audience. Thank you and well done. Far East Seminar, R. Fung, Department of Defense
