Myths and Realities of Chinese Espionage: A Talk by Dr. James Mulvenon @ Room 104, Old Civil Engineering Building, Georgia Tech Campus
Dec 4 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

The School of History and Sociology at Georgia Tech and the China Research Center present
Dr. Mulvenon on “Myths and Realities of Chinese Espionage”

Dr. Mulvenon’s presentation will first outline the scope and threat posed by Chinese intelligence operations in the United States, as described by senior US counter-intelligence and policy officials. Because much of the literature on Chinese intelligence is either outdated or fatally weakened by mythology and misinformation, the talk will then critically examine some of the prevailing views of Chinese intelligence tradecraft and offer an updated and more nuanced assessment of Beijing’s “layered intelligence” approach. This new framework will then be applied specifically to the large and growing set of China technology espionage cases, identifying commonalities and differences among them.

Headshot

James Mulvenon, Ph.D., is General Manager of SOS Intenational’s Special Programs Division, where he has recruited and trained a team of nearly fifty Chinese, Russian, Korean, Arabic, Farsi, Dari, Pashto, and Urdu linguist-analysts performing research and analysis for US Government and corporate customers. A Chinese linguist by training, he is a leading international expert on Chinese cyber, technology transfer, espionage, and military issues. He also provides expert consulting support and commercial intelligence to Fortune 500 companies for due diligence, mergers and acquisition, CFIUS reviews, cyber security, and personnel security involving difficult business environments like China. Dr. Mulvenon received his B.A. in China Studies from the University of Michigan, studied Communist Party History at Fudan University in Shanghai, and received his Ph.D. in political science from the University of California, Los Angeles. His dissertation, published by ME Sharpe in 2001 under the title Soldiers of Fortune, details the rise and fall of the Chinese military’s international business empire. In 2013 he co-authored Chinese Industrial Espionage, which is the first full account of the complete range of China’s efforts to illicitly acquire foreign technology. Dr. Mulvenon is regularly invited to address senior government and commercial audiences on Chinese technology and cyber topics, and his comments have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and other international media outlets.

U.S. China Policy under Trump: Must a Great America Be the World’s Greatest Nation? @ Georgia Tech, Steven C. Hall Building, Room 102
Jan 31 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Presentation by:

Robert Daly, director of the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States at the Woodrow Wilson Center and a former US Foreign Service officer

Time: 12-1:30 PM, Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Venue: Steven C. Hall Building, Room 102

215 Bobby Dodd Way, Atlanta 30332  (on Georgia Tech campus)

Synopsis: A Risen China is an unprecedented challenge to American power and principles. Any president would have a hard time responding effectively to Beijing’s ambitions. The difficulty is compounded by the current political crisis, in which the post-WWII consensus about the interests and values that drive American foreign policy has been lost. China is taking advantage of American confusion in predictable ways that threaten global liberal practices. Does it matter? Can Americans live as they wish if the U.S. is no longer the world’s most consequential nation?

This event is free and open to the public.
