East Asia Program Resents David M. Lampton on What Drives China's Foreign Policy?

As China assumes a larger role in world affairs, the Chinese leadership faces demands that sometimes generate inconsistent policies.  It seems, for example, that Beijing has become more assertive since 2009, while at the same time it seeks to promote regional stability.  Prof. Lampton will discuss the changing assumptions and realities that shape Chinese foreign policy.

David M. Lampton is Hyman Professor and Director of China Studies at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. His is former president of the National Committee on United States-China Relations in New York. He received his B.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University. His newest book, Following the Leader: Ruling China, From Deng Xiaoping to Xi Jinping, will be published by University of California Press in January 2014.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
