“Wolf Warrior” – Understanding China’s New Foreign Strategy
June 22, 2020 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
China is using its advantages from an earlier post-pandemic economic recovery and its role as a major health-supply producer to fill the vacuum left by the Trump administration’s disengagement in international affairs. However, its new tough-talking diplomacy may be driving it away from its goal. What is “wolf-warrior” diplomacy? And how will China’s foreign policy and public diplomacy efforts change after the pandemic? Tune in on Monday, June 22, 2020 from 12 PM – 1 PM to answer to these questions and more from Richard Hornik – Adjunct Senior Fellow at the East-West Center in Honolulu, HI.
