The Future of U.S.-China Relations in Southeast Asia

Join East Asia Program Co-Director Yun Sun as she leads a one-on-one discussion with Professor David Shambaugh, author of Where Great Powers Meet: America and China in Southeast Asia. They will discuss the book’s comprehensive findings, as well as the future of the relationship as great power competition evolves under new leadership.

As China emerges as an inevitable dominant power within the narrative of international relations, its complementary, competitive, and possibly conflicting interactions with the existing superpower will determine the nature of the broader geopolitical environment. In no other region are these interactions more at play than in Southeast Asia.
