Special Issue on China and the war in Ukraine

We’re delighted to offer something new for China Currents — a special, multimedia issue on China’s response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The issue features three of our associates — Dr. Yawei Liu, senior advisor on China at The Carter Center in Atlanta; Dr. Andrew Wedeman, professor of Political Science at Georgia State University; and Dr. John Wagner Givens, Associate Professor of International Studies at Spelman College. Each contributed a short essay with their perspectives on the question and then met for a fascinating Zoom discussion moderated by Katherine Peavy, a risk, resilience and security expert with many years of experience in China and East Asia. The essays and the video are featured in the issue.

The idea for the issue arose from a discussion with Katherine Peavy, Dr. Wedeman, Dr. Givens, Dr. Penelope Prime, our managing editor, Dr. John Garver and me over a lengthy dinner shortly after the Russian invasion. We hope you find it as valuable as we found it enjoyable to produce.
