Led by Senior Fellow Rush Doshi, the China Strategy Initiative will study and debate the questions that go to the heart of U.S. China strategy. It will launch several new programs that undertake fresh analysis, provide granular policy recommendations, and convene experts from around the world.

The launch event will bring senior U.S. officials and prominent American strategists together to explore U.S. policy towards China and the Indo-Pacific, debate U.S. China Strategy, and consider the implications of artificial intelligence on national security.
