Domestic Drivers of U.S.-China Relations: Politics, Public Opinion, and International Intervention 

Thursday, Feb 01, 2018 8:00:00   |  Texas Union Governors' Room, 3.116

On February 1, 2018, the Robert Strauss Center hosted an important academic conference at UT-Austin, one that brought leading scholars of Chinese foreign policy into conversation with experts on America's foreign policy towards China. The aim was to explore the domestic factors that influence each country's policy towards the other, and towards matters of mutual (but perhaps conflicting) interest. Participants presented scholarly papers exploring how factors such as factional political struggles, power consolidation, and domestic precommitments influence policy decisions.
