Abstract:

This paper describes an informal dialogue process known as Track 1.52 between the United States and China, that has been underway since the 1990s. Insights from that process are used to assess what the United States can learn from such talks to increase its understanding of Chinas nuclear intentions and activities. The primary conclusion is that while one must not expect too much from such talks, they are valuable endeavors and serve multiple purposes. They thus are worth continuing.
