China's Economic Expansion: Threat or Opportunity?
Join the John W. Kluge Center for a discussion of China’s rapid economic growth and how that is likely to affect its relationship with the US. Recent Library of Congress Chair in US-China Relations Carla Freeman will lead the discussion, joined by Kent Calder, David M. Lampton, and Daniel Markey.
The event, now available, will feature perspectives from scholars of China’s international relations and economy. Participants will bring their expertise to bear on the questions facing US policymakers as they consider how to respond to an increasingly assertive China.

She conducts research on Chinese foreign and domestic policy with a focus on regional dynamics, including China and its periphery, nontraditional security, and China's role in international organizations.
