China's ambitions are rising alongside its growing economic, political, and military power, but its goals are interfering with the peace and security of U.S. allies and partners. These tensions—over Taiwan, maritime territorial claims, and what to do about North Korea's nuclear weapons and missile program—could lead to superpower conflict between two nuclear-armed states. While it is important to prepare for worst-case scenarios and to deter China from using force to settle its many regional disputes, military buildups without diplomacy and dialogue can escalate suspicion and deepen mutual mistrust.
No stranger to the region and her work on Asia security issues, Rorry Daniels, Managing Director of the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) will be joining the Japan Center in person for the first time since taking her role last summer. How should the U.S. work with its allies to balance China's growing power and protect its own interests without sparking unintended conflict? What responsibilities does China have to temper its own behavior and under what circumstances is it likely to do so? Ms. Daniels will share her analysis and insights on these pressing concerns in our region.
