"America and China: The Next Thirty Years" brings together senior statesmen and distinguished scholars from both countries to reflect on past accomplishments and to discuss predictions and recommendations for the future. Conference participants will address U.S.-China relations, the broader Middle East, and nonproliferation policy and security studies.
