In this episode, we bring you a recording of our recent event with Robert Daly, director of the Wilson Center's Kissinger Institute on China and the United States and AMS board member.

The lecture focuses on building Mandarin fluency after formal studies have finished, how to incorporate it into professional practice, and how to continue to not only maintain it, but actually improve it. Robert has dedicated a large portion of his life to studying Chinese and has wrestled, as many of us have (and continue to do!), with the difficulties of maintaining language skills while working full-time, often outside of China.

In this episode, we bring you a recording of our recent event with Dr. Zhang Zhexin, research fellow at the Center for Asia Pacific Studies at the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies and visiting fellow at CSIS. The title of his talk is China’s Pursuit of a New Asia Pacific Security Architecture and Implications for US-China Relations. Amid growing tensions over territorial disputes and increasingly confrontational security postures, Chinese leaders have been advocating for a new Asia Pacific security architecture. What exactly is this architecture? Does it symbolise China’s growing ambition for regional hegemony? Or is it ultimately a response to America’s rebalance to Asia? What is China’s vision of such an architecture and how is China going to achieve it? What does this mean for US-China relations? This talk is longer than our typical podcast, clocking in at about an hour, but it is well worth the listen.

As Americans, we often think of U.S.-China relations or U.S.-Russia relations, but few people think enough about China-Russia relations. China-Russia relations are critically important and little understood. They affect such things as Syria, energy, trade, one belt one road and many others.
