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?

Join us for a timely discussion of this topic with David M. Lampton, Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Institute of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. The program will feature expert remarks from Dr. Lampton, live audience Q&A, and time for networking and discussion with other globally-oriented participants.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

The program will be live-streamed to Zoom from 6:00 to 7:00 PM ET. To attend virtually, please register here.
