ISDP Forum: China’s Strategic Priorities – Change or Continuity?

September 2, 2019 - 15:00-16:30

Sino-American trade tensions, protests in Hong Kong, and fears of a major economic slowdown have dominated the discourse on East Asia for much of the summer. China will need to react to several related challenges in the immediate future, and how it decides to do so will effect much of the region. In this ISDP Forum, Dr. Hsin Chih Chen, Professor of Political Science at National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, will give a presentation on changes and continuities in China’s strategic attitude with a view towards unravelling some of the constraints to Beijing’s policy positions. Dr. Björn Jerdén, Head of the Asia Program at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs, will give comments on the presentation. The forum will be moderated by Dr. Niklas Swanström, Executive Director of ISDP.

The Institute for Security and Development Policy is a Stockholm-based non-profit and non-partisan research and policy organization. ISDP is dedicated to expanding understanding of international affairs, focusing on the inter-relationship between security, conflict, and development.
