Great Decisions looks at China

‘China’s Foreign Policy’ is next topic at Great Decisions at the Library

The next Great Decisions at the Library is “China’s Foreign Policy” at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, March 1 at Bethany Lutheran Church.

China has gone to great lengths to emphasize the “peaceful” nature of its meteoric rise. Yet few dispute that China is the dominant regional power in Asia – and in recent years Beijing began to flex its muscles regionally in order to advance its strategic interests.

What does the rapid rise of this new superpower mean for other countries in the region, and are there potential points of conflict with the U.S. as it “pivots” to Asia?

Kelly Erickson, visiting assistant professor in politics and government at the University of Puget Sound, will serve as moderator.
