Description

This special panel in cooperation with the Strauss Center of the University of Texas, Austin, will examine the prospects for armed conflict in the Pacific and America's moral imperative to keep the peace while still maintaining its values and credibility.

Is there an ethical justification to escalate? Can the United States and China avoid miscalculation and instead find common ground? What can the multiple historical examples of crises over Taiwan and the South China Sea teach the great powers about regional security, deterrence, and avoiding total war? Is it true, as some commentators have argued, that policymakers and the public more broadly have forgotten the horrors and costs of great power conflict, and thus we are sliding into a great-power war? If so, what, if anything, can be done to protect the peace?

Ian Buruma is Paul W. Williams Professor of Human Rights and Journalism at Bard College.

Joshua Eisenman is a distinguished scholar at the Strauss Center.

Jennifer M. Harris is senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Devin Stewart will moderate this event.

There will be a reception following the panel discussion.
