The China-US-Asia Dialogue

About the project

The APLN China-US-Asia Dialogue examines the growing perception gap between China and the United States – the divergent understandings of a wide range of basic factual issues that lead to deepening mistrust and increasingly pessimistic interpretations of each other’s strategic intent. Bringing together experts from China, the United States, and the Asia-Pacific to debate this phenomenon, including by encouraging self-reflection on how policies and practices might have contributed to it, the project’s goal is to craft a series of practical proposals to help close the gap.

The China-US-Asia Dialogue is aimed at devising pragmatic policy recommendations for decision-makers and policy communities across the Asia-Pacific, and Washington and Beijing in particular.

The project is supported by a generous grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
