Recently returned from serving as U.S. Consul General in Surabaya, Robert Pollard discussed(in off-the-record remarks) Indonesia's transition to democracy and the problematic experiment of introducing pluralism at both the federal and local levels. During his tenure, his consulate—which covers Indonesia's eastern half—reported regularly on such issues as democracy, elections, internal security issues, and political Islam. He is thus uniquely qualified to offer an American perspective on Indonesia's opportunities and challenges.

Despite the convergent strategic interests of the United States and China in the war against terrorism and two Bush-Jiang meetings since September 11, mutual distrust and strategic competition continue to characterize this bilateral relationship. Is U.S.-China strategic cooperation possible without mutual trust? Three experts gathered for a June 5 seminar at the Woodrow Wilson Center to explore this and related issues. The three speakers for the seminar were Avery Goldstein of the University of Pennsylvania, Ross H. Munro of the Center for Security Studies, and James J. Przystup of the National Defense University. On the next day, Goldstein and Munro spoke at a breakfast seminar on Capitol Hill on the same topic.
