China as a Global Power

Will a rising China be a threat to its neighbors, like Germany in 1914? Or a benign power that will exercise influence through peaceful means, as China is purported to have done in its imperial past?

Weighing the Rebalance Series

Weighing the Rebalance is a Wilson Center initiative that will bring a series of experts to Washington to analyze the Chinese and American roles in the Asia-Pacific from the viewpoints of countries whose futures will be shaped by Sino-U.S. competition and cooperation in the region. Country-focused presentations will be supplemented by programs on trade issues, military affairs, energy and the environment, and soft power. We hope you will join us over the next two years for these discussions and debates. At the close of the public series, the Kissinger Institute and the Asia Program will host a conference on Weighing the Rebalance, which will result in publications and briefings for policymakers in Washington and Beijing. We hope you will join us and offer your own views on these vital issues.
