Please join the CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies for the release of our latest report, “Decoding China’s Emerging ‘Great Power’ Strategy in Asia.” If China’s economic, military, and geopolitical influence continues to rise at even a modest pace over the next few decades, we will witness the largest shift in the global distribution of power since the rise of the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. To stay on the path toward realizing this new balance of power, President and Chinese Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping and his colleagues will have to successfully navigate immense challenges at home and abroad. At the core of the new Chinese leadership's emerging foreign policy vision is the question of what type of great power China wants to be. Our distinguished panel of authors will discuss the seemingly contradictory policy inclinations that appear to be guiding China’s new leadership and analyze regional perceptions of China’s Asia strategy.
