What: The Beijing-Moscow Joint Declaration of February 4 declared their relationship knows “no boundaries.” 20 days later, Russia brutally expanded its ongoing war against Ukraine. This sequence of events has sharpened the focus on the conduct and goals that animate the China-Russia relationship. It also has raised questions about how China will respond to Russia’s invasion, and how China’s orientation to the war will impact its relations with the United States, the European Union, and others. Ultimately, what international order will arise from this crisis?
On June 23, the Foreign Policy program at Brookings will host a webinar with Senator Mark Warner to pursue answers to these and other questions. Brookings Vice President of Foreign Policy Suzanne Maloney will kick off the conversation and engage Senator Warner in a moderated discussion before Brookings scholars Ryan Hass, Angela Stent, Jim Goldgeier, and Constanze Stelzenmüller examine China’s ambitions, their implications for the existing international order, and how the U.S. should navigate its relationship with China.
