Abstract:

The U.S. strategy for addressing Chinas rise is central to national security and future world order. It will affect the likelihood and character of future wars, will have major economic and financial implications, and will shape global alliances and partnerships. Despite this topics importance, there remains a lack of consensus at the most basic level, as to whether the United States should impede or accommodate Chinas rise. In order to best adapt to the changing geopolitical landscape, protect its interests, and encourage strategic coherence, the United States needs to actively manage Chinas international behavior by allowing it to expand its power and influence through acceptable means, while clearly identifying and aggressively penalizing unacceptable conduct.
