The U.S.-China Dialogue on Security Relations has been an especially rich and productive discussion. The participants have met eight times in the last nine years to assess the two countries’ views of regional security concerns, their bilateral relationship, and how the two can work together to deal with those issues. Given the centrality of the two countries to the future of the region, it has been particularly valuable to bring the next generation of scholars and security experts into the room to hear their seniors and provide their own assessment of the bilateral relationship.
