    While frictions between the United States and China in the areas of
    trade and technology are certainly noteworthy, the most critical
    driver of potential instability between Washington and Beijing
    actually consists of clashing security perceptions and policies. What
    is the status of bilateral security ties and how might they develop
    going forward? What can be gleaned from China’s 2019 Defense White
    Paper about Beijing’s military strategy? Will we see increasing
    competition between the two countries in the security arena?


    Michael Swaine is a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for
    International Peace and one of the most prominent American analysts in
    Chinese security studies. Formerly a senior policy analyst at the RAND
    Corporation, Swaine is a specialist in Chinese defense and foreign
    policy, U.S.-China relations, and East Asian international relations.

    He has authored and edited more than a dozen books and monographs and
    many journal articles and book chapters in these areas, directs
    several security-related projects with Chinese partners, and advises
    the U.S. government on Asian security issues. He received his
    doctorate in government from Harvard University.
