Asia Pacific Security and U.S.-China Relations

The Asia Pacific security and U.S.-China relationship has never been more uncertain than it is today. The Center is at the forefront of measures to improve dialogue and communication on contentious issues in the Asia Pacific region. Through dialogues and joint research, the Center has fostered constructive conversations among former senior military officers, government officials, and leading scholars on the South China Sea dispute, nuclear proliferation on the Korean peninsula, and the reconciliation challenges in East Asia.

 

This Program has received generous supports from the Henry Luce Foundation for its multiple projects including Promoting U.S.-China Communication and Dialogue on the South China Sea Disputes (2016-2019) and U.S.-China Security Dialogues: Advancing Communication at a Bilateral Crisis Point (2019-2022). In May 2020, the Henry Luce Foundation approved an urgent needs grant to support the Center’s Luce Dialogue on U.S.-China Relations During and After the Pandemic project. This project will address critical challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and aims at improving understanding and cooperation between the two nations during the pandemic crisis.

 

We have been collaborating with the Woodrow Wilson Center and Nanjing University on multiple projects of this Program.
