Join Young China Professionals (YCP) on Tuesday, February 25th, for a conversation with Dr. Isaac Kardon, assistant professor at the U.S Naval War College (NWC) in the Department of Strategic and Operational Research’s China Maritime Studies Institute (CMSI).
Dr. Kardon researches and writes on maritime disputes, Indo-Pacific maritime security and commerce, China-Pakistan relations, and the law of the sea. Our free-flowing conversation with Dr. Kardon will center around China’s overseas port projects, specifically its “strategic strongpoint” ports in the Indian Ocean, with additional emphasis on how China’s growing footprint and ambition in this space impacts U.S.–China Relations more broadly.
Dr. Kardon’s remarks will be followed by Q & A and mingling.
