Community Event

China’s Global Rise: Managing U.S.-China Relations in a New Era

October 09,2023

4:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Furman University, Younts Conference Center

Details

U.S.-China relations are more strained today than they have been in half a century. Government and popular mistrust is high on both sides, exacerbating efforts to put the relationship back on track. As communication and exchanges grind to a halt, so do hopes of mutual understanding and constructive policy responses.

Yet never has it been more important for the two countries to cooperate. Global peace and prosperity depend on stable relations between the world’s two largest economies and militaries. With no direct military-to-military communications, flashpoints in the Taiwan Straits and South China Seas threaten to erupt in violent clashes. A host of transnational issues can only be addressed through cooperative bilateral relations: combatting climate change, controlling pandemic disease, managing new technologies, ebbing the deadly flows of fentanyl, addressing human rights violations, and more.

U.S.-China tensions are disrupting global supply chains and economic growth. Nations increasingly feel forced to choose sides as U.S.-China relations spiral towards a new cold war. Our speakers, leading experts from government and non-government organizations, explore how both official and private efforts can help realign the relationship while still addressing the challenges facing the two global powers.
