Speaker: Dr. Suisheng Zhao, Professor and Director of the Center for China-U.S. Cooperation at Josef Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver

U.S. policy toward China during President Obama’s first term underwent a dramatic pivot, from stressing shared interests with China to clashing with Beijing on sensitive issues. This paradigm shift is often understood in the context of the U.S.’s obligations to defend its Asia-Pacific allies against a rising China. How should we really understand this shift? Is it indeed a turn to encircle and contain China’s rise or are there other causes and implications?

Suisheng (Sam) Zhao is Professor and Director of the Center for China-U.S. Cooperation at Josef Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver. He is member of the Board of Governors of the U.S. Committee of the Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific, a member of National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, a Research Associate at the Fairbanks Center for East Asian Research in Harvard University. He received his Ph.D. degree in political science from the University of California, San Diego.
