Description

Dr. Graham Allison, Former Assistant Secretary of Defense; Director, Harvard University’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs; Author, Destined for War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides’s Trap
In Conversation with Ellen Tauscher, Former Representative, California’s 10th Congressional District; Former Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security; Member, Commonwealth Club Board of Governors

Could an unstoppable China and an immovable America be headed towards war? Or is there a way to avoid it? Graham Allison, former Assistant Secretary of Defense and Director of Harvard University’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, argues that unless China is willing to scale back its ambitions or Washington can accept becoming number two in the Pacific, a trade conflict, cyber-attack, or accident at sea could soon escalate into all-out war.

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Allison about how the Thucydides Trap, the inevitable contention between a rising power and an established power, is still relevant today.
