POSTPONED: How should the United States deter China?

This event is being postponed to a later date. The new date will be announced once it’s been rescheduled. 

The 2018 National Defense Strategy was the first time the Pentagon identified China as the organizing focus of U.S. defense policy. Elbridge Colby, former deputy assistant secretary of defense for strategy and force development, was a key architect of that document. In a new book, he now lays out a vision for how the United States should approach China in the coming years, with special consideration for how the U.S. military might win a war with China in order to deter such a war from ever taking place.

On September 23, Brookings will host Colby for a virtual event to discuss his approach to the long-term challenge of deterring China.
