Recently there has been talk about “a New Cold War”. Is this exaggerated – or are we already in it? In this episode we discuss with Chinese expert Da Wei about some contentious issues. Is the worsening of relations between China and the West inevitable? Is the US a declining power? What has Beijing learned from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, especially with regard to its relation with Taiwan?
Da Wei is the Director of the Center for International Security and Strategy (CISS) at Tsinghua University, and Professor at the Department of International Relations, School of Social Science of Tsinghua. His expertise covers China-US Relations and US Security & Foreign Policy.
He was a visiting Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council of the United States from 2006 to 2007, and a visiting Senior Associate at SAIS, Johns Hopkins University from 2008 to 2009
