Smart Power in U.S.-China Relations
CSIS has launched a high-level Commission, co-chaired by former Secretary of Defense William Cohen and Hank Greenberg of C.V. Starr & Company, to help shape a more constructive and effective American approach to the U.S.-China relationship. Specifically, in March 2009, the Commission released a concrete set of policy recommendations for both the Obama administration and the 111th Congress on how the United States can work with China to bring to bear their respective soft power to promote the global public good, while simultaneously ensuring the protection of U.S. interests. The CSIS Commission on China's report Smart Power in U.S.-China Relations presents a strategic framework for the relationship based on the need to cooperatively address transnational challenges.
