Event Details

THURS, MARCH 8th program is CHINA & AMERICA, presented by Dr. Anne Hamilton.


In the last 15 years, China has implemented a wide-ranging strategy of economic outreach and expansion of all its national capacities, including military and diplomatic capacities. Where the United States has taken a step back from multilateral trade agreements and discarded the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), China has made inroads through efforts like the Belt and Road Initiative and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). What are Beijing’s geopolitical objectives? What leadership and political conditions in each society underlie growing Sino-American tensions?  What policies might Washington adopt to address this circumstance?


Dr. Anne Hamilton is coordinator of International Studies at UW-Whitewater.  She has a Ph.D. in Political Science from UW-Madison in comparative politics and international relations.  Anne served in the Foreign Service and has lived in Mexico, Switzerland, England, Argentina and Russia.  She has authored an article for the China Review and is a regular on PBS Channel 36 “International Focus.”
