The past 8 years have seen major shifts in the United States and parts of Europe over perceptions of China, giving rise to debates about the scope, scale, and goals of “de-risking” trade relationships with China, especially when it comes to digital technologies. What is the status of this debate in the United States, and how does political polarization affect U.S. policy toward China? And what is the status of this debate in Europe—can Europe speak with one voice on China? These topics will be discussed by Andrew Grotto, William J. Perry International Security Fellow and Director of the Program on Geopolitics, Technology, and Governance at Stanford University, and Una Aleksandra Beržina-Čerenkova, Head of the Asia Research Programme at the Riga Stradiņš University.

The discussion will be moderated by Luukas Ilves, Estonia’s Government Chief Information Officer.

The event is free and open to the public. RSVP is requested. 

The panel discussion and a Q&A session will be held in English. The panel discussion will be followed by a reception.

This event is part of the Global Conversations Talk Series and is co-organized by Vabamu and Stanford Libraries.
