Academy/PSQ Forum | Policy or Pique? Trump and the Turn to Great Power Competition

April 27, 2021
2:00 p.m.–3:15 p.m. EST
WEBINAR

This Academy/PSQ Forum on U.S. relations with China and Russia featured Deborah Welch Larson, Robert Jervis, and Robert Y. Shapiro. Dr. Larson discussed her article from the Spring 2021 issue of Political Science Quarterly, which analyzes Donald Trump’s policy toward China and Russia and the return of great power competition. She argues that Trump’s personalization of foreign policy undermined his trade war with China and efforts to improve relations with Russia, and that the Joe Biden administration will continue to compete but seek cooperation in areas of shared interests.
