This conference is part of an ongoing multi-year project on Worldviews of Aspiring Powers: Exploring Domestic Foreign Policy Debates, conducted by Professors Henry Nau and Deepa Ollapally at the Sigur Center, and supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.  

Worldviews of Aspiring Powers examines the internal discussions of foreign policy taking place in five aspiring powers – China, India, Japan, Russia and Iran. The initial phase of the project produced a volume to be published in September 2012 by Oxford University Press entitled, Worldviews of Aspiring Powers: Domestic Foreign Policy Debates in China, India, Iran, Japan and Russia. The chapters identify different foreign policy schools of thought in each aspiring power and the media, institutions, or universities with which these schools are associated.

In the next phase of the project, we seek to present these viewpoints directly to the Washington community through a series of conferences. The first conference, on India, was held in January of this year. The second is the China conference you are about to watch.
