@ Brookings Podcast: The U.S.-China Relationship
Kenneth G. Lieberthal, April 02, 2010

Google’s announcement in January 2010 that its computer systems had been compromised in an attack believed to have originated in China, and the company’s subsequent announcement of a partial withdrawal from China’s search engine market, have brought increased public attention to the issues of internet censorship and cybersecurity in China. While these two issues are distinct, they both present new kinds of challenges to U.S. and Chinese policymakers.

A panel of experts will discuss these issues and address the specific challenges faced by the two countries in dealing with them. Emily Parker, Arthur Ross fellow at the Asia Society, will discuss censorship in China and the effects of the Internet on Chinese society. James Mulvenon, director of the Center for Intelligence Research and Analysis at Defense Group, Inc., will discuss China’s capabilities for cyber warfare and the implications of cybersecurity issues for U.S.-China relations
