Tension, Tariffs and Trump: U.S.-China Relations in 2019

Date: Oct 30, 2019

11:45 a.m.--1:00 p.m. | Library Conference Center

U.S.-China relations during the Trump Administration have been characterized by increasing competition in areas such as North Korea, international trade, and the balance of power in the Asian-Pacific region. Increased tension over Taiwan and human rights in China have reduced decades of steady, if limited, cooperation on regional and global issues. While some argue that this disruption is harmful to long-term U.S. interests, others argue that confrontation now will stem larger problems in the future. Will the future be dominated by conflict or cooperation? Dr. Scott LaDeur, political science professor, explains the current state of play.
