Recent years have witnessed an expansion of China’s influence, both within the Indo-Pacific region and around the world. On Thursday, May 9, Foreign Policy at Brookings will host Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.) for a discussion on the implications of China’s growing global role for American foreign policy and national security.
The event will launch a new Foreign Policy at Brookings initiative, Global China: Assessing China’s Growing Role in the World. The project utilizes original and in-depth research to provide the public and policy-makers with a new baseline for evaluating the implications of China’s actions on the world stage. Senator Warner, a leading voice in the policy space, who has sponsored bipartisan legislation to counter technology-based threats from foreign powers and to protect American technological competitiveness, will deliver remarks on several key issues that he sees as defining the future of U.S. policy toward China.
Following his remarks, Ambassador Victoria Nuland, nonresident senior fellow with Foreign Policy at Brookings, will join Senator Warner onstage for a discussion on these themes. Questions from the audience will follow the conversation.
This event has reached capacity and registration is now closed.
