New forum: Strategic Reflection Forum on China
The rising tensions between the US and China is a strategic challenge for Denmark. COVID-19, industrial espionage, trade war, human rights and democracy in Hong Kong and the Uyghurs in Xinjiang, security policy in the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea – the list of contested issues between the world’s two largest economies is long. As two tectonic plates, the rising China presses against the US and the US-supported world order, which has structured world politics since WW2. The crisis creates new strategic conditions and challenges globally and for Denmark.
The Centre for Military Studies is therefore proud to launch Strategic Reflection Forum on China. The forum takes the development of the relationship between the US and China as a starting point for a discussion on, how this sets new strategic conditions for Denmark and what challenges and opportunities Danish decision makers and the public are faced with. The forum includes Danish researchers with special knowledge of China or foreign- and security policy.
