What: As voters begin casting ballots in the 2020 election, China has become an animating issue. With U.S.-China relations factoring into political debates at all levels of government, policymakers are having to weigh the risks and opportunities of positions they take on questions relating to China. What issues involving China have the most resonance in city halls, state houses, and Congress, respectively? In what ways do public attitudes toward China affect policy considerations?
On Thursday, October 15, the John L. Thornton China Center at Brookings will host an online discussion with a bipartisan group of policymakers on China exploring how leading political figures at each level of U.S. government approach these questions.
Policy 2020 events aim to empower voters with fact-based, data-driven, non-partisan information so they can better understand the policy matters discussed in the 2020 election.
