China’s Foreign Policy and the American Response

  • 01 Dec 2014
  • 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
  • CSUSB - Santo Manuel Student Union Events Center Room 106A

China is not only important in the curriculum, it is central to the nightly news. Join us as we discuss  current issues in U.S. - China relations with CSUSB Chinese scholar Jeremy Murray.

As China rises to international prominence, its international policy interests continue to evolve and reflect its new status. China’s rise naturally comes in an era of different international cooperation, constraints, and concerns than those that Europe and America experienced in the late 19th and 20th centuries. Beijing must also balance the domestic drive for economic growth with political challenges at home and abroad in a rapidly changing environment. While Beijing and Washington dictate policy based on perceived interests, the people of the PRC and the US will also chart their future relations.

  • What does the rapid rise of China as a superpower mean for other countries in the region?
  • What are the critical issues in Sino-American relations as the U.S. “pivots” toward Asia?
  •  How will the responses of American and Chinese people shape a shared future?
  • Will the new carbon standards agreed upon by China and the U.S. make a difference to the environment?

Cost: Teachers $15 includes lesson materials
