Over the last decade relations between the United States and China have deteriorated to their lowest point since the establishment of diplomatic relations in the 1970s. Professor Ross will outline the policies that led to this situation looking at both American and Chinese foreign policy. He will also consider the impact of the 2016 election on the prospects for Sino-American relations.
Professor Ross is author of many books and articles on China- United States relations. He has testified before various Congressional committees and advised US government agencies. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the National Committee for US-China Relations. He has taught previously at Columbia University and at the University of Washington. He was a Guest Scholar at the Brookings Institute and a Fulbright Professor at the Chinese Foreign Affairs College. He was a Visiting Senior Fellow at the Institute of International Strategic Studies, Qinghua University, at Peking University, at the Royal Danish Defence College and the Norwegian Defence University College.
