Join us in Munich for a special evening with Prof. Arne Westad, the Elihu Professor of History and Global Affairs at Yale. He’ll be speaking about US-China Relations in light of the Ukraine War. The evening will be moderated by Ambassador Eric Nelson, Associate Director of the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies .

The Russian aggression against Ukraine began at a time when global tension was already running high.  What will the effects of the war be on relations between the United States and China, a relationship deemed by many to be key to future peace and stability?  Will the Chinese leadership continue its de facto backing of Russia?  And will Russia’s leaders accept a subservient relationship to China as a price they have to pay for the war?  In this talk, Professor Westad will discuss these issues in light of lessons from history.
