The Three Faces of Chinese Power
Accurately assessing the political, economic and military rise of China is a critical task. China is developing comprehensive national power and seeks a balanced portfolio of coercive, economic, and intellectual power. Yet U.S. policymakers often overestimate China's military might when the country is actually growing most rapidly in the economic and intellectual domains. Dr. David Lampton will address how China’s capacities are changing along each dimension and to consider what the implications of these developments may be for future American policy.
Dr. David Lampton is Dean of Faculty, George and Sadie Hyman Professor and Director of China Studies at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. He also is Senior International Advisor on China for Akin Gump. Previously, he was president of the National Committee on United States-China Relations in New York City, founding director of the Nixon Center’s Chinese Studies Program, and director of the American Enterprise Institute’s China Policy Program.
