Latin America and China: What Do They Mean for Each Other?

Event co-sponsors: the Institute of the Americas, the China Institutes for Contemporary International Studies, and the Wilson Center’s Kissinger Institute on China and the United States

Book Launch: 'Water: Asia's New Battleground'

An event organized by the Wilson Center's Asia Program, with co-sponsorship from the China Environment Forum and the Environmental Change and Security Program.

“Asia,” warns Brahma Chellaney, “faces a daunting water crisis.” It is a crisis that imperils the region’s economic and political rise, and that deepens environmental risk in a part of the world marked by melting glaciers and densely populated coastal areas.

Collaboration with Taiwan to Address Regional Environmental Challenges

Please come join the Wilson Center's China Environment Forum and Asia Program for a conversation with Taiwan's Minister of Environmental Protection, Dr. Stephen Shu-Hung Shen, to learn about work the EPA and Taiwan have been doing since 2010 to engage regional partners to advance global capacity in the remediation of contaminated sites, e-waste recycling and management, and reduction of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from ports.

Will Religion Challenge the Chinese State?

China stands out as one of the few officially atheistic states in the world today. Yet, with the exception of uprisings among Tibetans and Uyghur Muslims that were often as much about national identity as about religion, China has largely been spared the kind of political unrest inspired by religion experienced elsewhere. This does not reflect the absence of organized religion in China; indeed, many sociologists have noted a dramatic revival of belief and practice in that country.
