Enhancing U.S.-China Strategic Stability in an Era of Strategic Competition
Online Event - Enhancing U.S.-China Strategic Stability in an Era of Strategic Competition
As strategic competition between the United States and China intensifies, the danger of a military confrontation is no longer a far-fetched scenario. Despite recognizing the growing risks of major power conflict, the United States and China have few, if any, effective mechanisms to resolve their differences peacefully. Enhancing strategic stability by lowering the risks of military conflict, preventing a destabilizing arms race, and managing emerging technologies and frontiers of conflict — such as those in space and cyberspace — are now more critical than ever to ensure that the United States and China can compete without disastrous consequences.

Join USIP for the launch of a new report featuring essays from leading American and Chinese security experts on the challenges and opportunities associated with strengthening U.S.-China strategic stability. The event will feature a discussion with six of the report’s authors regarding the perception gaps and drivers of U.S.-China conflict in the nuclear, missile, space, cyber, and emerging technologies realms. The authors will offer recommendations on steps the United States and China can take in the near term to enhance strategic stability.
