Cold War Lessons for U.S.-China Ties Today with Michael McFaulVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Program 7 of 8 in our Seeking Truth Through Facts U.S.-China Program Series
On Wednesday, December 15, join Asia Society Northern California for a virtual off-the-record executive roundtable on Cold War Lessons for U.S.-China Ties Today as our seventh program in our Seeking Truth Through Facts U.S.-China program series. Ambassador Michael McFaul will discuss key policies that U.S. policymakers will need to readopt against significant challenges by the Chinese government that will require, as he writes, “creative strategic thinking, not simply dusting off the Cold War playbook.” What will the future of U.S.-China diplomatic relations result in a Biden Administration and will the new administration be able to create a relationship of sustained confrontation and cooperation, containment and engagement, or of isolation and integration?
Date: Wednesday, December 15, 2021 from 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Pacific
Groundbreaker and Innovator Event. Space is limited.
5:00 p.m. Program Begins
6:00 p.m. Program Concludes
Please register through Eventbrite if you are interested in attending. James Gale (JGale@asiasociety.org) will send an email with a Zoom link once confirmed.
