Course Description

How should the United States respond to a China that seems determined to overturn the liberal international order? In the aftermath of its recent America First strategy, should the US seek to rebuild its Indo-Pacific formal and informal alliances? If so, how might these countries respond to our overtures? Is the US still viewed as a reliable partner, or has its recent actions destroyed trust in America? What kinds of relationships with these regional allies and partners would best help to frustrate Chinese ambitions? How might China react to such a strategy? In this discussion course, we will explore these questions, and others, by reading "U.S. Strategy in the Asian Century: Empowering Allies and Partners" by Abraham M. Denmark. | Facilitated discussion.
