This multimedia issue follows a format initiated early this year when we engaged three leading scholars in discussing China’s reaction to the invasion of Ukraine. In this issue, Dr. Andy Wedeman, Professor of Political Science at Georgia State University, focuses on Chinese internal politics; Dr. Yawei Liu, Special Advisor on China at The Carter Center, offers his perspective on U.S.-China relations; and Dr. John Givens, Associate Professor of International Studies at Spelman College focuses on Taiwan and China. We offer essays from each of the scholars and a video recording of a panel discussion moderated by me featuring the three scholars on December 14, 2022. We covered a lot of ground, and we hope that you can set aside time to read the issues and watch the hour-long panel discussion.
