Great Decisions - Discuss China and the US

Thursday, May 18, 2023

If you are curious, have passionate opinions about politics, social and cultural norms, historical precedents and national and foreign policy, the Great Decisions Discussion Program created by the Foreign Policy Association of America is the perfect discussion group for you.

The Great Decisions program is designed to be like a book group:  participants read the same material and then meet to have an informal discussion.

Topic for this discussion: China and the US

For the past ten years, the United States and China have been locked in a competition for who has the greatest global influence. One major point of contention is the status of Taiwanese sovereignty, which has become even more relevant recently with the possibility that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine may prompt China to take similar action regarding Taiwan. How will the United States engage a China which is increasingly seeking to expand its sphere of influence?
