About the Conference

This conference will explore several questions related to China's rise to prominence and power in world politics. What are China's attitudes and policies toward the current array of international institutions, norms and rules? How is China engaging with key global issues today, such as nuclear non-proliferation, the financial crisis, and climate change? Will China assume more of a leadership role in the future, and if so, will it work within the existing system or seek to revamp that system? What can the US do to ensure that China is a "responsible stakeholder," and what adjustments will the US have to make as China's influence grows? On May 24 we will bring many of the best minds in the field to UCLA to discuss these questions.
