ONLINE EVENT ADVISORY: A Progressive Asia Policy: U.S. Alliances, the Rise of China, and a Changing Asia

Washington, D.C. — The rise of China has raised fundamental questions about U.S. policy toward Asia: What are the roles of U.S. alliances? What should America prioritize with its allies in the region? How can alliances deter China without increasing tensions and the chance of conflict?

As American policymakers debate these issues, progressives are wrestling with additional questions: How can America work with allies to support human rights in China and elsewhere? What does a progressive policy toward North Korea look like? How can progressives balance interests in reduced military spending with the need for robust alliances and military presence in Asia? What other issues should a progressive policy toward U.S. allies in Asia focus on?

Please join the Center for American Progress for a conversation with leading experts on how the United States and its allies can work together to contend with China’s rise and what progressive U.S. foreign policy in the region should prioritize in the coming years.
