The September terrorist attacks in the U.S. led to increased cooperation between the U.S. and Chinese governments against international terrorism. Dr. Jia will address the question of whether this is a marriage of convenience or a development of sustainable cooperation. Dr. Jia will argue that after twenty years of sweeping changes in China, the fundamental issue between China and the U.S. lies less in their substantive differences (economic, political, ideological and cultural) than in their differences in priorities. Dr. Jia will propose that Beijing and Washington can serve their best interests if the current emerging cooperative relationship is managed properly.
