The U.S.-China Rivalry: Power Politics, National Security, and Economic Engagement

The relationship between the U.S. and China, the two most powerful countries in the world, has become increasingly hostile and tense. While the economic ties through trade, investment, and supply chain continue to be critical for both countries, the political and security relationship is the lowest it has been in decades. In this lecture, Dr. Krista Wiegand will discuss the political and geostrategic reasons for the growing U.S.-China rivalry and what this means for U.S.-China relations.

This lecture is part of the National Security Forum lecture series, U.S.-China Relations: National Security vs. Economic Engagement, hosted by the Center for National Security & Foreign Affairs.
