Xi's New Global Security Initiative

July 14, 2022 • 10:00 – 11:15 am EDT

Unveiled by Xi Jinping at the Boao Forum for Asia in April 2022, the Global Security Initiative is the latest display of China’s ambitions to be a leader in global governance and security architecture. What is Xi’s vision for the initiative? How will it be implemented? What are its geopolitical implications?
