Event Description

ABOUT THE TOPIC

The more things change, the more they stay the same, or so the saying goes and so it seems with the relationship between China and the U.S., except maybe this time things are on a particularly dangerous downward spiral. Security worries already have produced an arms race, a deterioration in trade and economic relations, and reduced cultural and educational links. How did we arrive at this juncture and what can be done about it, by both sides?


ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Dr. Lampton started his teaching career at Ohio State University (1974-1987), spent the decade following that in New York City at The National Committee on US-China Relations as its president, and then became Director of China Studies at Johns Hopkins--SAIS where he spent the next twenty-one years (1997-2018). Dr. Lampton was Chairman of The Asia Foundation (2014-2019), and spent from 2018 to 2020 at Stanford University as the Oksenberg-Rohlen Fellow at the Asia-Pacific Research Center.
