University Forum Lecture Series - US-China Relations: Coping with the Three "Nots"


Dec. 5, 2016, 7:30pm to 9pm

Office/Remote Location



The College of Liberal Arts' University Forum Lecture Series presents "US-China Relations: Coping with the Three “Nots”" Dean Cheng, senior research fellow, Asian Studies Center, The Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy, The Heritage Foundation.

This talk will examine what our speaker calls the three “nots” that mark US-China relations: Why Asia is not Europe. Why China is not the Soviet Union. And why this is not your father’s PLA (People’s Liberation Army). He will also argue that US-China relations do not really analogize well to past US relations with other major powers, in no small part because the environment is so different.
