Date & Time

Dec. 4, 2020
3:00pm – 4:15pm ET


There is no more important arena in the U.S.-China worldwide competition than the ten nations of Southeast Asia. Their response to the superpowers’ economic, strategic, and soft power overtures will shape the future of the region’s 650 million people and will be a key factor in the shifting global balance of power.

In Where Great Powers Meet, renowned China scholar David Shambaugh brings lifelong study of U.S.-China relations and years of on-the-ground research to bear on the evolving rivalry in Southeast Asia. Please join us for the Washington launch of his latest book and a conversation on how Chinese, American, and Southeast Asian policies will shape both great powers and the world’s most dynamic region.
