Washington, D.C. – On Friday, May 16, the Center for American Progress will host a discussion of how converging challenges – including climate change, rapid urbanization, political corruption, and an aging population – will increase China’s already intense focus on energy security and exert an increasing focus on Beijing’s foreign policy.

CAP is releasing a new report entitled “Climate Change, Migration, and Nontraditional Security Threats in China,” which outlines the complex environmental, economic, and demographic challenges facing China as it pursues sustainable economic development and increased regional responsibilities.

Join the CAP as we host Dr. Markus Ederer, Germany’s State Secretary and former European Union Ambassador to China and other speakers to discuss these dynamics and explore the implications for U.S. foreign and development policy.

WHO:

Speakers:
Dr. Markus Ederer, State Secretary, German Foreign Ministry and former Ambassador of the European Union in Beijing
Sherri W. Goodman, Senior Vice President and Executive Director, CNA Military Advisory Board, CNA Corporation
