Axis of Authoritarians: Implications of China-Russia Cooperation

  • 1777 F Street Northwest (map)

PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGE, THIS EVENT NOW STARTS AT 9:00, NOT 9:30.

NBR invites you to join us for a discussion on the growing cooperation between China and Russia and the emergence of an authoritarian axis in multiple domains. Speakers will assess the challenges that China-Russia cooperation poses to the United States and its partners and provide a thorough assessment of policy options available to the United States to strengthen its position and defend its interests.

This discussion marks the release of NBR’s volume Axis of Authoritarians: Implications of China-Russia Cooperation.

The event will feature a panel of contributors to the volume discussing the strategic context of China-Russia relations, the drivers and brakes on cooperation, options for the United States to respond, and likely future scenarios. A second panel will explore regional views of Sino-Russian cooperation, including perspectives from China, Russia, and Japan. The event will conclude with lunchtime keynote remarks from a high-level U.S. government official.
