Are the US and China in an Ideological Competition?

October 21, 2019 • 9:00 – 10:30 am EDT
The event will be webcast live from this page.
Among the growing sources of tension between the US and China, an underexplored topic is the potential for ideological competition. In addition to battle for trade, technological, and military superiority, will the two countries find themselves locked in a clash of values as well?

Please join the Freeman Chair in China Studies on October 21 for an in-depth discussion on the role of ideology in the US-China strategic rivalry. The event will feature panelists Toshi Yoshihara, Senior Fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments; Jessica Chen Weiss, Associate Professor of Government at Cornell University; Dan Tobin, China Studies Faculty at the National Intelligence University; and Andrew Mertha, George and Sadie Hyman Professor and Director of China Studies at Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. Jude Blanchette, Freeman Chair in China Studies, will moderate the panel and Q&A with the audience.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
