China has emerged as a powerful global competitor to the United States. Beijing has asserted itself militarily, diplomatically and economically. A stable US-China relationship is in the best interest of both countries and world peace, but a revisionist China could threaten to topple the international liberal order established after the Second World War.

Will Washington and Beijing be able to steer their ships away from the brink of conflict, or is it possible for both countries to grow together and avoid great power conflict?

Hear and engage leading experts as they debate whether a US-China Conflict is Inevitable – the latest installment of the McCain Institute’s Debate and Decision Series.
