Polaris Live: A China Agenda for Biden - May 2021 Schedule
With a new American President and Administration there is an opportunity to recalibrate U.S. grand strategy for China to reflect today’s reality of two superpowers, with diametrically opposed governance ideologies, who have no choice but to co-exist. A new learning experience for both. POLARIS-LIVE invites leading experts and authors from the U.S., Asia, the EU, and around the world to converse with host Sarwar KASHMERI about their thoughts re what should be a 21st Century U.S. grand strategy for China.
