Rethink, Reset, Recalibrate: U.S.-China Relations from Donald Trump to Joe Biden

President-elect Biden has pledged a reformed approach to China and the United States’ relationship with the outside world but has stopped short of advocating a return to the status quo of the Obama presidency. What is the current status of the U.S.-China relationship after four years of Donald Trump’s leadership? How are the overall strategic direction and policy priorities likely to change–or not–under a Biden administration? What will be the implications for the U.S.-China relationship and its impact on the rest of the world? What new opportunities may emerge for U.S.-German and U.S.-European cooperation on China over the next four years?


Elizabeth Economy’s lecture will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Mikko Huotari, Executive Director of the Mercator Institute for China Studies; Evan Medeiros, Penner Family Chair in Asian Studies and Cling Family Distinguished Fellow in US-China Studies at Georgetown University; and Ambassador Volker Stanzel, Senior Distinguished Fellow at the German Institute for International Security Affairs
