China’s Economic Highwire Act
The Chinese economy has driven Beijing’s international ascent and growing influence. The discrepancies behind the headlines—such as aid never matching the announced figures—loom larger as China extends its reach abroad.
11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Beijing’s Tools of Coercion
China’s power cannot be explained by growth numbers or naval ships launched alone. How the Chinese Communist Party projects influence illuminates the consequences of Chinese power.

Keynote Luncheon
1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Toward a More Perfect Totalitarianism
Alongside Xi Jinping’s crackdown on human rights, the CCP had deployed new methods and new technologies for social control. Understanding both the hard and the soft sides of the party’s rule is necessary to see how the party rules without sacrificing popular legitimacy.
3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
US-China Relations and the New Competition
The US Administration declared a strategic competition with China and moved forward with aggressive trade measures. A turning point has been reached, but we still need to evaluate where China is, where we have been, and how to move forward.
