Chinese Assessments of De-risking

October 11, 2023 • 10:00 – 11:00 am EDT

Brought to you by

Since the term was first used by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in March 2023, both the Biden administration and G7 have embraced “de-risking” to describe their trade and investment policies toward China. How is Beijing assessing the implications of U.S. and allied de-risking efforts for China’s technological and economic development? What options might Beijing pursue to limit the reach and negative effects of these strategies?

Please join the Interpret: China project for a panel discussion with a group of experts who will unpack this topic using recently translated primary source materials. The panel will feature Jacob Gunter, senior analyst at MERICS, Lily McElwee, fellow with the Freeman Chair in China Studies, Janka Oertel, director of the Asia program and senior policy fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, and Andrew Polk, co-founder and head of economic research at Trivium China, and senior associate with the Freeman Chair in China Studies. The panel discussion will be moderated by Jude Blanchette, Freeman Chair in China Studies.

This event is made possible by support from the Ford Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
