Negotiating with China during peacetime, crisis, and conflict – AEI – American Enterprise Institute: Freedom, Opportunity, Enterprise21st May 2019
While there is no shortage of discussion about how war between the US and China could break out, few have asked how such a war might end. During crisis or conflict, how can we draw China to the negotiating table? How has China historically ended its wars, and how might this inform how the US approaches China diplomatically in peacetime, crisis, and war?
In her new book, “The Costs of Conversation: Obstacles to Peace Talks in Wartime” (Cornell University Press, 2019), Oriana Skylar Mastro asks: How can we get from fighting to talking? Join Dr. Mastro, Susan Thornton, and Tom Christensen as they discusses US diplomacy with China in an era of great-power competition.
Join the conversation on social media with @AEI on Twitter and Facebook.
