China: An Existential Threat to the Global Order

August 26, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

China: An Existential Threat to the Global Order
with Dr. Dale Moore

Thursday, August 26th   |   8-9:30am
University System of Maryland, Southern MD building  |  Bldg 1, Multipurpose Room


This IN-PERSON program will provide a top-level summary of the latest thinking regarding the fundamental risks that China, and especially its PRC leadership pose to the existing international order. To be discussed:
*China’s current status
*Its increasingly threatening activities
*Its stated goals and ambitions
*and the underlying motivations that drive PRC actions

Using a whole-of-nation top-down approach, China has become increasingly aggressive, provocative and antagonistic on essentially all fronts.  China is making substantial policy changes and investments intended to disrupt the status quo, create a new China-centric global order, and provide both military and economic offsets for future advantage to bring it to fruition. As a result, the U.S. and its allies must be fully engaged, ready and prepared with clear eyes and a strong sense of urgency to demonstrate resolve, and the ultimate power of democracy and capitalism to sustain superior technological capabilities, economic performance, freedom and basic human rights.
