Please join the CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies and the CSIS Transnational Threats Project for conversations with Congressman Joaquin Castro (D-TX) and Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) on U.S.-China information competition.

Moderated by Jude Blanchette, CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies, and Dr. Seth Jones, CSIS Harold Brown Chair and Director of the Transnational Threats Project, these conversations will examine the role of Congress and the U.S. intelligence community in competing with China – including Chinese disinformation and cyber activities. These experts will explore Chinese disinformation attempts relating to the U.S., Hong Kong, and Taiwan. They will also look at how to maintain a welcoming space for foreign talent and education while maintaining national security, and discuss what lessons can be learned from the U.S.’s information approach and strategy during the Cold War.

This will be a two-part interview style event, featuring remarks from Congressman Joaquin Castro , moderated by Seth Jones, followed by remarks from Congressman Will Hurd, moderated by Jude Blanchette.

This event is made possible by general CSIS support.
