Book Event: Innovate to Dominate

November 29, 2022 • 3:30 – 4:30 pm EST

In recent years, the Chinese government has placed a greater emphasis on strengthening national technological innovation and security capabilities, a techno-security strategy that seeks to position China as the world’s top techno-superpower. What efforts has China taken towards this end? How can the United States compete with China’s growing technological and security capabilities?

On November 29, 3:30-4:30pm, please join the Freeman Chair in China Studies for a discussion on the new book, Innovate to Dominate: The Rise of the Chinese Techno-Security State, featuring author Tai Ming Cheung, a professor at the School and director of the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC) at UC San Diego, and moderated by Jude Blanchette, Freeman Chair in China Studies at CSIS. In the book, Cheung examines the key strategies guiding China's transformation of its capabilities in the national, technological, military, and security spheres, and provides an assessment of whether China will outcompete the United States to become the largest technological and security power. The book provides an in-depth assessment of the means and ends of China’s techno-security ambitions, offering insight into the long-term direction of the global order.

This event was made possible by general support to CSIS.
