While the comprehensive view of US-China relations will be best characterized as strategic competition, confrontation and cooperation, what is the future prospect of the bilateral relationship over the short, medium and long term? Will/can China rise peacefully, while the US accommodates to its rise? Or is it the primary goal of American grand strategy to contain China as a 'peer competitor' in an anarchic world system? Do Beijing and Washington really understand each other's competition? Will both countries engage in a new cold war as mutual distrust continue to grow?
Please hear from UChicago Professor John Mearsheimer, a world-renowned international relations scholar on his realist perspective of the relationship, while Robert Daly, a veteran China watcher, will focus on US-China "coopetition" from an humanist approach.
