Daring to Struggle: China’s Global Ambitions Under Xi Jinping

December 15, 2022 | 10:00 am to 11:00 am | Asia Program

About the Event

Increasingly powerful, prosperous, and authoritarian, China under Xi Jinping has become a more intense competitor across the globe -- economically, technologically, diplomatically, militarily, and in seeking to influence hearts and minds.

Bates Gill, author of the new book, Daring to Struggleexplains the aims and motivations driving Xi-era China’s more dynamic, assertive, and risk-taking approach to foreign policy, and assesses the implications for China and the world. FPRI Asia Director Jacques deLisle moderates the discussion.
