As China maps out its post-COVID global strategy, the new Biden administration has so far indicated that it will continue a more assertive posture in its relationship with China. Listen to our panel of esteemed Columbia professors from the Weatherhead East Asian Institute discuss how this US-China relationship will unfold under Biden.

This program is organized by the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA Global Clubs) and cosponsored by the Weatherhead East Asian Institute and the Columbia-Harvard China and the World Program.
