The Real “China Challenge” Facing the U.S.

The framework of great power competition and the rhetoric of the ‘China challenge’ has taken root throughout U.S. policy circles, but do America’s allies view China in the same light? Perhaps the real “China challenge” is not China itself, but the struggles the U.S. may face in rallying its allies to its side. In this video, EGF Board President Ian Bremmer explores why the U.S. and its European allies diverge on China, and what that might mean for U.S. foreign policy.


This post is part of Independent America, a research project led out by EGF senior fellow Mark Hannah, which seeks to explore how U.S. foreign policy could better be tailored to new global realities and to the preferences of American voters.
