Visiting Scholar, Princeton University, Science and Global Security Program
Please join us for a conversation with Dr. Tong Zhao to discuss the future of U.S.-China nuclear relations. Zhao is a senior fellow in the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and a visiting research scholar at Princeton University’s Science and Global Security Program.
The strategic relationship between the United States and China is strained. At the same time, China is expected to significantly expand its nuclear weapons arsenal over the next decade while the United States continues to modernize its nuclear deterrent. In this era of increasing great power tension, there is a heightened risk of blunder or miscalculation that could lead to catastrophe.
What can be done to reduce these risks? How can dialogue and arms control cooperation between the United States and China be advanced? What is the view from Beijing on strategic competition and cooperation with the United States? Are there realistic options beyond traditional arms control to establish strategic stability between Washington and Beijing?
